Russian oil price ceiling appears to be $60. Russian sanctions, cutting off all Russian imports, take effect. They expire on Monday. So there are a lot of balls in the air that can affect gear. On the demand side, China and its Covid policies remain the wild card for global demand. The weekly price rose by .79% from last Friday’s closing level. Technically looking at the hourly chart, today’s low tested the top of the 100 hour MA at $79.85. The price fell below this level but rose above it. Next week, a move below the 100 hour MA would prompt investors to target the 200 hour MA at $79.05. On the positive side, the play’s close levels are 38.2% back from the November high of $81.28, followed by the 50% midpoint at $83.66.
