    FXStreet (Edinburgh) - Crude oil prices are falling further on Tuesday, currently hovering over the critical $30.00 handle per barrel.

    WTI weaker on OPEC, Iran

    Ongoing concerns over the current supply glut plus the likeliness of Iran pumping more oil into an already saturated market have been weighing on sentiment, dragging prices to 5-day lows in sub-$30.00 levels.

    In addition, rumours that Russia and the OPEC countries could fail to agree on an output cut has been also collaborating wit the daily decline.

    WTI levels to consider

    At the moment the barrel of WTI is down almost 5% around $30.00, facing the next support at $29.25 (low Jan.26) followed by $27.87 (low Jan.21) and then $26.19 (low Jan.20). On the other hand, a surpass of $34.82 (high Jan.28) would expose $35.54 (55-day sma) and finally $38.61 (downtrend from $50.92).
