WTI and Brent weekly chart showing the break below 55 for WTI and 60 for Brent.

WTI and Brent weekly chart showing the intermediate downtrend. WTI could not hold above 55 for the year-end. Brent could not hold above 60. One can only conclude that the price of both grades is going lower unless there is a significant geopolitical event.
