WTI technical analysis: Daily moving averages converge at 57.80, potential support


Oil prices were whipsawed on the geopolitical front once again and while the market managed to shrug-off the concerns of a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico which has cut oil output in the region by more than half, from a technical standpoint, WTI has printed a strong daily bullish candle. 

Bulls continue to commit and the price drifts higher on the 60 handle. On the downside, the familiar  20, 50 and 200 Experiential Moving Averages fall in line as potential support around 57.80. Then, below the weekly lows at 56.77, the 52 handle and then the 14th Jan 50.41 lows ahead of the 26th November lows at 49.44 are a target.
