Brent (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

On Thursday, the Brent prices fell to the four-week lows. The market concerns that the Great Britain may leave the European Union pressured the appetite for the risky assets. The Brent futures fell due to the reduced concerns about the global supply disruptions.

Current situation

The oil quotations remained under pressure. The Brent broke through the supports 48.50 and 47.50 dollars per barrel, and fell to the level of 46.50. The oil set a new low at the mark of 47.06. The resistance is at 47.50, the support is at 46.50.

MACD is in the negative area, the histogram decreased, there was a sell signal from the indicator. RSI entered the oversold area again. The Brent quotes are below Moving Averages (50, 100 and 200). The MA 200 works as a resistance.

Trading recommendations

The Brent stopped near 47.20. A cut through here will aim it at the 46.50 level. If the pair consolidates above 48.50 there will be a high chance of its return to the growth.
