USOIL - H4
Talk of major countries globally releasing their strategic reserves to contain oil prices and thus stem inflation, brought Oil down last week, which took another hit from Friday's resurgence of COVID-19 fears.
This led to the fourth straight negative week – the longest losing streak in more than a year – and a close below key 38.2% Fibonacci of the "summer Low/October multi-year high" rise. Bias is tilted to the downside at this stage and the commodity in exposed to the next Fibonacci level at around 73.57-74.21, with the next support provided in the sub-70.00 area by the 200Day EMA.
Oil finds support today as sentiment shows signs of improvement and we can see further rebound, but it does not seem ready to challenge the EMA200 ($80.00), above which it will return in the driver's seat.
