Brent Technical Analysis

First things first: Brent crossed below its 20 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. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 14 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone up 8 out of the past 14 days. Price action traders may wish to observe the bearish engulfing pattern that has emerged over the past two trading days; in light of the uptrend on the 90 and 30 day charts this may be particularly noteworthy, as it may signal the uptrend is cooling and ready to reverse.
