II. Fundamental news:

data released by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) showed that hedge funds and other large investors increased their long positions in crude oil last week to the highest level since May, and prices rose to a nine month high due to tensions in the Middle East. G20 officials issued warnings about the impact of rising oil prices on the global economy, prompting investors to take profits

the tension between Iran and Western countries and the improvement of the U.S. economic outlook have been considered to be the main drivers of the rise in oil prices. Traders expect that concerns over Iran will continue to drive crude oil futures higher

III. future outlook:

on the 27th, the international crude oil adjusted as scheduled, ending the "seven consecutive suns", but it was not concluded that the oil price has entered a downward track. As previously mentioned, this is only a counterattack by bears leveraging the market's "fear of heights", and it is likely to continue the consolidation of the platform in the short term.
