WTI now eyes $55.00/bbl and below
Prices of the WTI remain under heavy selling pressure and are already trading in fresh 2020 lows in sub-$56.00 levels, some $10/bbl lower than early January tops. Wednesday’s drop was on the back of rising open interest, leaving the bearish view intact for the time being and allowing for extra losses to, initially, late November low at $54.77.
