Technical Analysis: Brent oil seeks fresh buying but $65.00 probes buyers
Brent oil’s bounce-off early February low has a bumpy road ahead as 200-SMA joins the previous support line from February 19 to challenge the commodity buyers around $65.00. Even if the black-gold prices conquer the $65.00 hurdle, March 10 low and February 25 top, respectively around $67.00 and $67.70 could test the oil bulls. It should also be noted that bearish MACD suggests further hardships for the commodity’s corrective pullback.
Meanwhile, six-week-old horizontal support around $61.85 restricts the quote’s immediate downside ahead of 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level near $61.00 and the $60.00 psychological magnet. If at all the oil bears dominate past-$60.00, the late January tops surrounding $56.00 may return to the chart. Overall, oil bears are likely rolling up their sleeves to consolidate the latest run-up.
