Looking at it from a technical analysis, if the price of Oil makes that "double dip" (W) with the RSI or MACD having a higher low on the second dip, we may be looking at the price of oil potentially breaking out of this uptrend channel and creating higher highs. Ofcourse, the fundementals of an increase in US production and from OPEC may drive prices below the...
There are many Bullish fundamentals (companies reporting great earnings) supporting the market where it is today. However, a corrections can still ocurr as mostly emotions drive the markets, and not logic.

Using Fibonacci Extensions, the 1.272 line shows the support lines for the next few days leading up to Wednesday 6/17. On Wednesday, at 10:30 the EIA will release the weekly US Crude Oil inventories. Based on that data, prices may bounce off of Wednesday's 1.272 support line, which also acts as the bottom support of the uptrend channel (purple line).
