Crude oil prices traded higher with benchmark NYMEX WTI crude oil rose by 0.48% to $119.42 per barrel. Crude oil prices rallied to the highest level in almost three months after Saudi Arabia signalled confidence in the demand outlook by increasing the price of its crude for Asia by more than expected. The tight supplies and higher demand may continue to support oil prices to trade up in near term. We expect crude oil prices to trade up with resistance at $123 per barrel with support at $115 per barrel. MCX Crude oil June contract has important support at Rs 9050 and resistance at Rs 9380 per barrel.
