Brent Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: Brent crossed above its 100 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. So if you expect the primary trend to resume, the counter trend may be providing an opportunity to buy dips. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For another vantage point, consider that Brent’s price has gone up 8 of the previous 14 trading days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
