Whilst we retain our view that oil prices could be headed for $100 further out, the trend seems to have hit a speed bump over the near-term.

WTI broke above $90 with ease yet faltered around $95 with a shooting car candle with high volume (which makes it a potential key reversal day). A bearish divergence has also formed with the RSI (2) after it reached overbought.

With the potential for the Fed to be more hawkish than expected, it could provide the catalyst for a pullback on WTI. A break below $90 confirms the near-term reversal is underway, with $87 making an initial target around the volume node from its preceding leg higher. $85 could also provide support around the August highs, which might tempt dip buyers more focussed on the fundamentals currently supporting higher oil prices.
The pullback was small and the bullish reversal strong. WTI is trading around its YTD highs and seemingly wanting to head for $100.
