Oil Technical Analysis: WTI is testing $50.00 a barrel

Oil daily chart

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

Oil 4-hour chart

  • The 200 SMA is currently capping the bullish advance.

Oil 30-minute chart

  • $50.00 a barrel seems to be acting as strong resistance and at this stage, it is doubtful that bulls have what it takes to break above it this week. 
  • To the downside, support can be seen near the 49.00, 48.00 and 47.00 figures.
