WTI crude oil touched $50.00 a barrel on Wednesday in the early Asian session. The gains came after the OPEC+ meeting saw Saudi Arabia cutting oil output by one million barrels per day.
The rise to $50.00 marks the first time testing this level since February 25, 2020. For the moment, price action is seen retesting the rising trendline from below.
If the trendline holds, then we expect to see a possible reversal off the $50.00 handle.
A breakout above the trendline could see further gains likely. However, for the moment, oil prices could consolidate between the 50.00 and 47.00 price levels.
