Brent Oil Trades Near a Downside Resistance Line | Technical Analysis

Brent crude oil has been trading in a consolidative manner since Tuesday when it jumped higher after hitting support t 78.60. That said, it stayed below the downside resistance line taken from the high of October 26th, and above the 81.80 barrier. In our view, despite Tuesday’s rally, the outlook remains somewhat negative, but in order to start examining a forthcoming negative wave, we would like to see a dip below 81.80.

Such a dip could initially encourage the bears to push the action down to the 80.15 barrier, which is marked by Monday’s inside swing high. However, if they are not willing to stop there, then a break lower could extend the fall towards the low of Tuesday, at 78.60, or the 78.15 territory, which stopped Brent from moving lower on Friday and Monday.

Shifting attention to our short-term oscillators, we see that the RSI lies above 50, but it points east, while the MACD, although positive and slightly above its trigger line, is flat as well. Both point to positive momentum, but a weakening one. They could top soon. That’s why we believe that the bears may take advantage of that, but as we already noted, we prefer to wait for a confirmation break below 81.80.

Now, in order to start examining whether the bears have taken the driver’s seat, we would like to see a break above 83.40, marked by the high of November 16th. The price will already be above the aforementioned downside line, and we could see advances towards the peak of November 4th, at 85.10. If the bulls are not willing to stop there, then a break higher could pave the way towards the 85.95 zone, which prevented further advances on November 2nd and 10th.
