Fundamentals: With just a few days since a framework was agreed regarding Iran’s nuclear programme and there are reports of Iranian oil officials visiting Beijing to push for increased oil sales and investments in its oil infrastructure. Meanwhile, Saudi-led military actions in Yemen have continued with air strikes carried out against a Houthi-held airbase located to the south of the capital Sanaa.

Technicals: The contracts have held support on this morning’s dip and are now eyeing up the very serious resistance higher. The short term (s/t) MAs have held in every case but WTI, where it was not weak enough to near the MAs. The key is now what happens at the very strong resistances at 52.48 WTI; 58.04/06 Brent; 178.55/179.25 Heat; 184.88 RBOB; and 546.00 Gasoil. There are no targets higher until these levels are moved over. It’s advised to wait and see what happens at these resistances. Moves confirmed by closes over would be constructive and green light targets higher.
