Trend Theme：WTI has been rangebound but trading with a positive bias and is now eyeing a key fib at $62.30.
Trend Review：It’s been a relatively uninspired day for crude oil markets, which at the moment cling onto modest gains, but have been undulating between positive and negative territory for most of the session so far. Front-month futures for West Texas Intermediary, or WTI (the American benchmark for sweet light crude oil), currently trade at the upper end of a roughly low-$60.00s to $62.00 range. To the upside, traders should note resistance in the form of the 50% Fibonacci from last week’s highs at around $66.40 to last week’s lows at around $58.20 – this 50% fib is at roughly $62.30, just above current levels and is likely to offer solid resistance.
