Brent and WTI crude both fell over 2.0% and deepened recent declines as a bigger-than-expected draw in US crude inventories failed to recover optimism to bulls. Sell-off intensified further even despite the fact that the EU proposed further economic measures against the Russian energy and mining sector, including a ban on new mining investments. OIL broke below the key support zone around $88.20 which is marked with 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the upward wave launched in December 2021. If current sentiment prevails, the downward move may accelerate towards the lower limit of the descending channel or even support zone at $66.00.
