Technical Analysis: Brent oil buyers can ignore short-term support break

Despite breaking an ascending trend line from early November, Brent oil remains beyond 21-day SMA. However, a clear break beyond the previous support line, now resistance, around $51.30 becomes necessary to renew optimism. Following that, $52.50 and the recent high close to $53.30 can lure energy buyers ahead of making them confront February lows near $53.65. It should, however, be noted that the oil bulls will not refrain from challenging the $60.00 threshold in a case where the quote remains positive past-$53.65.

Meanwhile, a daily closing below the 21-day SMA level of $50.48 needs validation from the $50.00 round-figure to recall the sellers targeting November tops near $49.00. Though, any further weakness below $49.00 can make the commodity vulnerable to retest August month’s high of $46.08. Overall, Brent oil remains in an uptrend but the covid woes are likely to test the bulls.
