Brent Technical Analysis

First things first: Brent crossed below its 50 day moving average yesterday. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 14 day timeframe. This may setup an interesting opportunity for traders looking to buy dips in anticipation of the primary trend resuming. For another vantage point, consider that Brent’s price has gone down 6 of the previous 10 trading days. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see evening star pattern appearing here as well.
