However, bullish momentum from final week “seems to be ebbing,” Rubin added. “Pure gasoline is technically overbought, and the brief squeeze-fueled rally could also be working out of extra shorts to squeeze. Additional, if technical resistance holds, a bearish double-top sample could quickly kind and invite rebuilding brief positions.”
