WTI: Next on the upside comes $80.00 and above

WTI prices regained the smile on Friday after three daily pullbacks in a row. The rebound was amidst increasing open interest and leaves the room open to the continuation of this trend at least in the very near term. The immediate resistance for the commodity lines up at the key $80.00 mark per barrel.
