Price settles at $75.03 after trading as high as $76.07
The price of WTI crude oil futures are settling at $75.03. That is up $0.20 or 0.27%. The high price reached $76.07 but came off after report from OPEC+ that they may look to increase production at their upcoming meeting. That sent the price back down toward the 100 hour moving average (blue line in the chart below) currently at $74.92 where support buyers have stalled the fall
Going forward, if the price moves below the 100 hour moving average at $74.92, traders will once again target the 200 hour moving average. It would take a move below each to increase the bearish bias.
Conversely if the 100 hour moving average can now hold, the buyers remain in control and traders will probe the recent highs including the September 28 high at $76.65.
