- Sellers return after WTI run into strong offers just below the 200-HMA cap.
- RSI trades flat while above the bullish zone, keeping buyers hopeful.
WTI (futures on NYMEX) has stalled its recovery rally below the 200-hourly moving average (HMA), now dropping further towards the $59.50 level.
The US oil drew support from the Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman’s comments. The Minister expressed confidence that OPEC and its allies (OPEC+) made the right output decision.
At the time of writing, WTI drops to $59.65, looking to test the critical support at $59.60, which is the confluence of the upward-pointing 21-HMA and bearish 100-DMA at $59.60.
A break below the last could expose the 50-HMA at $59.50.

The hourly Relative Strength Index (RSI) has turned south but holds above the central line, currently at 51.93.
Therefore, the upside bias still appears intact. The oil bulls need a sustained break above the horizontal 200-HMA at $60.10 to unleash additional upside.
The next relevant barrier is seen at the psychological $60.50 level.
