Fundamental Development Oil was up on Wednesday morning in Asia, with investors continuing to digest a draw down in U.S. crude supply that raised supply concerns. Brent oil futures rose 1.01% to $106.03 and WTI futures jumped 1.14% to $103.58. The gains came after the European Union said on Tuesday that it is mapping out fresh sanctions against Russia. The sanctions, which come in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, will target Russian crude supply. Russia is the second-largest crude oil exporter globally. Tuesday’s U.S. Crude oil supply data from the American Petroleum Institute showed a draw of 3.479 million barrels for the week ended Apr. 28.

Short Term Technical View: In 1-hour chart, XTIUSD is trading Middle line of Bollinger band indicator. As per today is a crude oil inventory data at 8 pm (IST) that’s why XTIUSD is trading today pivot level 102.98. As per the 1-hour chart sell on rise strategy is good for XTIUSD. As per my view, XTIUSD sell range is 104 to 104.50 and there is very strong resistance zone at 105.66.

Alternative Scenario: If XTIUSD will trading above pivot level 102.98 in U.S. Session and Crude oil inventories data will show positive and RSI Indicator also trading above 50 levels so it will be give great opportunity to buy with the target of 107 with the stop loss of 101.66
