    Brent Crude oil (LCOJ5: 60.70 +2%) has recouped some of what was lost yesterday. A potential breakthrough in the nuclear talks with Iran helped kick-off the selling yesterday and it triggered a reduction in speculative long Brent/short WTI trades which helped WTI outperform.
    Technical support on Brent crude at $59.70 (trendline and 21-SMA) have so far provided the support while resistance at $62.80 is keeping the room for maneuver relative tight.

    WTI crude jumps back into positive territory, while Brent crude remain down on the day, following the weaker than expected US ISM which dropped to the lowest since January 2014. The reductions was partly blamed on cutbacks in the energy sector as current low prices weigh on investments. Further WTI support has come from market shatter that Greenscape, an early bird on making Cushing estimates, have reported a smaller than expected inventory rise last week.
    These developments have seen the prompt spread between April and May WTI crude oil contract and at a same time caused some profit taking on the spreads to Brent Crude.

    Bullish bets on Brent Crude rose by 11,371 lots to 182,783 in the week to February 24. This is the biggest net-long since last July and it was primarily driven by another jump in gross-long positions on a combination of improved conditions for Brent and the widening of the spread to WTI crude oil.
