WTI bounces off daily lows, back to $46.60

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - After a brief test of session lows in the $46.30/20 area, crude oil prices have regained the positive territory and are trading back around $46.60/65 per barrel.

WTI firmer ahead of rig-count data

Prices for the black gold remain on the defensive at the end of the week, looking to recover further ground after the sell-off from Monday’s tops around the critical $50.00 mark.

In the meantime, bullish attempts appear limited by lingering concerns over the current supply glut and a renewed sentiment towards the greenback.

In the data space, driller Baker Hughes will report on US oil rigs count later today.
