U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures are trading higher shortly after the regular session opening, but the market is trending water. Although it posted a higher-high on the daily chart, there was very little follow-through to the upside. This suggests the start of a possible transition period.

Given the prolonged move up in terms of price and time, the early price action has also put the market in a position to post a closing price reversal top. This won’t mean the trend is changing to down, but it will indicate the selling is greater than the buying at current price levels. This could lead to the start of a 2 to 3 day correction.

At 1235 GMT, November WTI Crude Oil futures are trading $75.45, up $0.15 or +0.20%.
