Bottom line: WTI Crude long term outlook remains bullish against $0.01 lows. Over the near term though, the commodity is expected to remain under pressure as bears might prepare to push through $27.00 and $17.00 levels. Intraday pullbacks should remain well capped below $43.75 mark.
DAX had pushed through 13450 highs early this month, before facing selling pressure. The indice trades close to 13200 levels as we prepare to publish and would be taking cues from global indices Dow Jones and SPX500 over the next several weeks. It would be interesting to see if DAX manages to push through its 13800 February 2020 peak.
WTI Crude prices have remained under pressure since hitting highs at $43.75 around August 26, 2020. The recent volatility in global markets might have raised concerns over demand. If risk aversion continues further, the commodity might come under renewed pressure around $41.00/41.00 levels.
