WTI daily charts
The price is on the backside of the prior dominant bear trend but remains on the front side of the micro breakout trend. Therefore, the bias is to the upside e for the time being.
It would be reasonable to expect a correction into the Fibonacci scale and the 38.2% Fibo meets trendline support. If this were to give, however, a deeper move into a 50% mean reversion could be on the cards.
