Oil 30-minute chart

WTI is trading below the 63.00 figure and the 50/100 SMAs suggesting further down move. Bears will need to overcome 62.70 and 62.50 support to travel to 61.05 support. Resistances are seen at 63.40 and 63.80 levels. A bullish break above 64.00 might invalidate the bearish bias.
