WTI: Next on the upside comes the YTD peak near $95.00
WTI prices resumed the uptrend on Tuesday, leaving behind the daily pullback seen at the beginning of the week. The daily bounce was on the back of shrinking open interest, however, hinting at the idea that the continuation of the move seems not favoured for the time being. In the meantime, the 2023 peak near the $95.00 mark per barrel remains as the next target for bulls.
