Oil Prices Fall. Is Oil A Buy?

oil prices chart

WTI crude oil prices fell on Monday, despite the fact that during the day the instrument was trading at the highs of April 2019. Today, quotes are also falling, losing about 0.4%. An escalation of tension in the Middle East is supporting the instrument, but at the moment, investors are fixing their profits, which provokes the appearance of technical corrections.

Meanwhile, the parties to the conflict exchange threats. Last weekend, Donald Trump threatened with new sanctions against Iraq, which is the second largest oil producer in OPEC. In addition, Trump calls on official Tehran to refrain from any revenge for the murdered general, threatening with “serious retaliation”. In turn, Iran has left the nuclear agreement of 2015, designed to limit the country in the rate of uranium enrichment.

Support and Resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show stable growth. The price range is expanding but it fails to conform to the development of “bullish” sentiments at the moment. MACD has reversed downwards preserving a buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic reversed horizontally approximately at the center of its area, pointing to the emergence of ambiguous dynamics in the ultra-short term.
