Brent Technical Analysis

Notably, 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. Traders will also want to note, though, that a counter trend — meaning a trend going down — can be seen 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 up 5 of the previous 10 trading days.
