Brent (a 4-hour chart)

Brent (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

The Brent prices continued to decline as the weak economic data from Asia had revived concerns about the global economic outlook. The strengthening of the US also had a negative impact on the oil prices.

Current situation

The oil quotes stopped their decrease and even made an attempt to grow. The Brent started the week from the support at 49.60. The futures grew to the level of 50.50 but failed to consolidate above it. The resistance comes in at 50.50, the support lies at 49.60.

MACD is in the negative area, its signal line is in the histogram. MACD decreased and that is a sell signal. RSI bounced off the oversold level of 30. That is a buy signal. The Brent quotes bounced off the 100 Moving Average that is a buy signal.

Trading recommendations

The Brent may return to a growth if it breaks the resistance 50.50 (the 50 Moving Average). If the quotes consolidate over 51.00 it will advance north to 52.50. Otherwise we will see a drop below 49.60.
