WTI: price increase is corrective in nature
Current Dynamics

Since the opening of today's trading day, WTI crude oil has been trading in a narrow range near the mark of 57.00 dollars per barrel. One of 3 key resistance levels (ЕМА200 on the weekly chart) passes through this mark. Below this level and resistance levels of 59.50 (Fibonacci level 50% of the upward correction to a fall from the highs of the last few years near the 76.80 mark to the support level near the 42.15 mark), 59.00 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart) is dominated by a long-term negative dynamic.
The current increase in the price of oil, which is observed this week, so far can be described as corrective, provoked by a number of fundamental factors.
This is the growth of geopolitical tensions in the Middle East, as well as the weakening of the dollar, occurring against the backdrop of the Fed's statements about the increased likelihood of monetary easing. After last week two oil tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman, on Thursday, US officials reported a missile attack on a desalination plant in Saudi Arabia, which was allegedly inflicted from Yemen. Later, the Islamic Revolutionary Corps announced that it had shot down an American reconnaissance drone over Iranian territory. The United States on Thursday announced preparations for a retaliatory strike on Iran.
Earlier, the Iranian authorities have repeatedly threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, if US sanctions against Iran are not lifted.
The increased risk of oil supply disruptions from the Middle East, coupled with a weaker dollar, led to a sharp rise in oil prices this week.
On Friday, oil market participants will follow the publication at 17:00 (GMT) of a weekly report on the number of active drilling rigs in the United States from the American oilfield services company Baker Hughes. If the report again indicates a decrease in the number of such installations (788 units at the moment), this may give an additional positive impetus to prices.
Nevertheless, it is premature to consider price growth above key resistance levels 59.00, 59.50.
Below these resistance levels, a long-term bearish trend prevails.
