Crude Oil News and Forecast: WTI can continue downtrend below 57.90 to 57.00

WTI Oil Outlook: bears are pausing above 200DMA, awaiting US crude inventories reports

Meanwhile, the markets appear to have turned risk-averse ahead of the much-awaited US-China phase one trade deal signing scheduled on Wednesday.
