CRUDE OIL FUTURES: UP UP UP IT GOES

WTI NOW LOOKS TO… THE MOON?

Prices of the WTI clinched new 2021 highs beyond the $76.00 mark on Thursday, although it closed the session just past the $75.00 yardstick. The uptick was accompanied by rising open interest and volume, leaving the door open to further upside in the near term. There is, however, the probability of a corrective downside on the back of the current overbought condition of the commodity.
