The main resistance is near the $53.20 and $53.50 levels. Additionally, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $53.20 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD.

The trend line coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $54.28 high to $52.07 low. Therefore, an upside break above the $53.20 and $53.50 levels is must for decent recovery in oil price in the near term.
