Alongside WTI we also look at spot silver prices, as a bearish hammer has formed at a key resistance cluster. Take note that the US dollar and tomorrow’s Nonfarm payroll report will likely make their mark on silver and WTI, one way or another. We then look at NZD/JPY as it shows the potential to break higher, should appetite for risk allow.
