Fundamental Development: Oil prices inched lower after seesawing through early trading on Tuesday, as worries that fuel demand would hit by a possible recession and fresh COVID-19 curbs in China outweighed tight global supplies. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude fell 22 cents, or 0.2% to $120.71, while Brent crude futures eased 25 cents, or 0.2%, to $122.02 a barrel. In China, a COVID outbreak at a bar in Beijing has raised fears of a new phase of lock downs just as restrictions were being eased and fuel demand was expected to firm. Crude has rallied about 60% this year as an economic rebound coincided with upended trade flows after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. While China is facing a bumpy return from strict COVID-19 lock downs, rising consumption from the top importer will strain the market further and drive prices higher.

Short Term Technical View: In 1-hour chart, XTIUSD is trading above middle line of Bollinger band indicator. As per RSI Indicator also showing bullishness in 1-hour chart, XTIUSD is trading above today pivot level 117.80. As per my view, buy on dip is good strategy for XTIUSD, buy range is 117.80 to 117.50, and there is very strong resistance zone at 116.50.

Alternative Scenario: If XTIUSD will trade below 116.50 and sustain in U.S. Session so it will be, give great opportunity to sell with the target of 115.10 with the stop loss of 118.
