Oil Technical Analysis: Black Gold bulls at the $50.00 gate

Oil daily chart

  • Crude oil WTI is trading in a bear trend below the 200-period simple moving average (SMA).
  • Bulls are attempting to create a reversal up since late December.

Oil 4-hour chart

  • A break above $50.00 and the 200 SMA would be significant and might lead to higher prices in coming weeks.

Oil 30-minute chart

  • At the time of writing the 50.00 figure seems to be a brick wall and it remains to be seen if bulls have what it takes this week to break above it.
  • To the downside, support can be seen near the 49.00, 48.00 and 47.00 figures.
