As we noted above, yesterday the prices for WTI crude oil continued their recovery, bouncing off the key support level 69.35 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart) dollars per barrel.

If the growth continues, the nearest target will be the resistance level 73.70 (ЕМА50 on the daily chart), the breakdown of which will open the way for further price growth. The maximum growth target is still at the local resistance level 84.90 (October highs and multi-year highs). If the global economy continues to recover, and fears about the coronavirus decline, then there is reason to expect further price increases.

The first signal for the implementation of this scenario may be a breakdown of the support level 71.70 (ЕМА144 on the daily chart).
