U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude oil prices are under pressure Thursday after touching a fresh 5-month high on Wednesday. Long investors are booking profits and trimming positions in reaction to renewed concerns over rising U.S. inventories. While the early move suggests the market could be in for a short-term correction, traders feel the downside will be limited by tightening global supplies.

At 14:01 GMT, June WTI crude oil is trading $64.27, down $0.38 or -0.49%.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over $63.92 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this is able to generate enough upside momentum then look for the rally to possibly extend into $64.71. Overtaking this top will signal a resumption of the uptrend. This could trigger an acceleration to the upside.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under $63.92 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move generates enough downside momentum then look for a potential break into the major Fib level at $63.48. This is followed closely by a short-term 50% level at $63.32.

If $63.32 fails as support then look for the selling to possibly extend into the support cluster at $62.99 to $62.92.
