WTI levels to consider
At the moment the barrel of WTI is down 03.55% at $36.98 facing the immediate support at $35.96 (low Mar.15) ahead of $35.26 (100-day sma) and then $33.84 (55-day sma). On the other hand, a break above $38.60 (20-day sma) would aim for $40.12 (high Mar.28) and finally $40.84 (200-day sma).
