Brent Technical Analysis

Notably, Brent crossed above its 50 day moving average yesterday. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 14 day timeframe. If you’re looking to trade the primary trend, this may be a good opportunity to buy dips created by the counter trend. For another vantage point, consider that Brent’s price has gone up 20 of the previous 30 trading days.
