First attempt failed..prices tried chewing through the resistance at $40.45, but failed. Futures clocked a high of $40.55 and now trade around $40.35/barrel.

Purely going by the technicals, the uptick is a fresh opportunity to enter shorts for those who missed the bus yesterday.

Bearish Price-RSI divergence is quite clear. So the rally is likely to be met with fresh selling around the falling trend line resistance. Another failed attempt and prices are heading back to $39.50-39.00 levels.

Canadian dollar bulls should remain cautious as well
