Trading within a tight band along either side of $2.380 for the majority of the day, last week’s news of a decline in active drilling rigs provided enough momentum for the day’s bullish rise. Marking the intraday high of $2.384 at 11:25AM and the intraday low of $2.318 nearly an hour later, June closed higher on Monday at $2.375.
