Crude Oil Technical Analysis: Black Gold continues its descent as bearish EIA data sends WTI to $61.00 a barrel

  • Crude oil is trading in a strong bear trend below the 50, 100 and 200-period simple moving average on the 4-hour chart.
  • In reaction to the EIA data, oil lost almost $1 in a few minutes. Oil inventories rose to 5.7M versus 2.43M in the week to November 2 which was seen as very bearish by the market. 
  • Oil is now continuing its descent reaching the 61.00 figure. While some consolidation up towards 62.00 can take place the momentum remains clearly to the downside.
