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

WTI oil price edged higher on Tuesday after steep fall in past six days found footstep at 200DMA ($57.75).

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