WTI Surges Towards $50 – Breaks Above Key Technical Level

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Ahead of today's rig count data, WTI (and Brent) Crude is extending its short-squeeze gains after the bullish inventory data trend was confirmed (shrugging off the surge in production). Signals from an increaisng number of firms that they are cutting capex (and this drilling) has helped send WTI and Brent back above their 200-day moving-averages.

Halliburton, promising to be disciplined in adding more fracking gear to the oilfields, says U.S. explorers are "tapping the brakes" on drilling as the price of oil struggles to breach $50 a barrel.

Brent's front-month has pushed into backwardation and the medium-term WTI curve the same…suggesting producers are actively hedging next year's supply at these new high prices…

The recent strength has pushed WTI back above its 200-day moving-average…

Support or Resistance? We suspect the 1pmET rig count data will decide the rest of the day.
