WTI pressured below $ 46, weekly rise in sight

FXStreet (Mumbai) - WTI oil halted a 2-day rebound and fell sharply lower from fresh weekly reached near $ 47, although the black gold is poised to book first weekly gain in three weeks.

WTI drops $ 1 from weekly highs

Currently, WTI falls -0.75% to 45.72, capped below $ 46 in today’s trading session so far. Oil prices are seen heading lower as markets remain cautious ahead of the US rigs count report due later today. The number of rig counts dropped by just one to 594, the report showed by oilfield services company Baker Hughes on last Friday.

The US oil fails to benefit from broad based US dollar weakness as the persisting worries over supply glut as also global economic outlook weighs heavily on traders’ minds. Meanwhile, markets now await a host of US macro releases for further USD moves, which will eventually impact oil.

WTI Oil Technical Levels

WTI oil has an immediate resistance which stands at 46.22 (Oct 28 High) levels above which gains could be extended to 46.79 (Oct 29 High). While to the downside, the immediate support is at 45 (round number), below which the prices could drop to 44.66 (5-DMA).
