Newbie to oil and sources of information needed

Hi,

I am one of the unfortunate to go long on oil in the middle of the OPEC+ row and the start of the COVID pandemic. Needles to say I paid some university fees and, to honest, still paying those fees.

It has become better. Looking at some candle patterns I managed to trade myself out of most of my loses. However. Last week I took my biggest knock. I was long for a period of time with about 6x0.25 contract at various entry levels. The market turned. I saw some good trend reversal patterns just fly buy. Nothing stopped the trend. Its clear that patterns work but at this moment, sentiment seems to drive. And I have to say, the sentiment is mostly nonsensical. Up trend on possibility of vaccine then a reversal because it didnt work out but when the pandemic seems to come back the price still rises. Man, loony bin seems to be in the near future.

I like a challenge which is exactly why I haven't nursed my wounds and left this behind:-)

Digging I have found very little sources of information to supplement my technical analysis. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that could help me with some places where i can get key metrics that are as current as possible. I am using ForexFactory for the basics like housing stats etc and also looking at the EIA at their belated news on stocks etc. Good for Brent not so much for Crude. What i am looking for is a good feed (like a Twitter handle), a good source of data for purchases (man i wish there is something like Forex purchases where you can see up to date purchases) and also stockpile data for countries around the world as current as possible.

Please can you help?

Thanks
