Brent Crude Oil Price Breaks out of Bearish Wedge

Commodities / Crude Oil Jul 07, 2015 - 01:21 PM GMT

By: MarketsToday

Commodities

Brent Crude broke down from a bearish rising wedge formation several weeks ago, trading relatively sideways thereafter, until the tail end of last week when it fell below and closed below $60.97. The 50% retracement at $57.41 was surpassed yesterday to the downside, with the next target being around the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $54.53, followed by the most recent swing low (C) at $52.61.


There’s only been one leg down since the bearish breakout so rallies up into resistance can be used to get out of long positions or enter new shorts. Resistance could be found around the short-term downtrend line (see Daily chart), followed by around $62.71/62.97, consisting of the 55-day exponential moving average (ema) and a previous peak, respectively. Those price areas then start a potential resistance zone up to approximately 66.33, consisting of a prior consolidation phase.

A rally above $66.33 could change the outlook to bullish, depending on how Brent arrived at that price level.

On May 6th, Brent peaked at $69.59, just 1% shy of completing a perfect AB=CD pattern, and just under resistance of the 200-day ema. This combined with the breakout of the bearish wedge points to the possibility that the rally in Brent has come to an end. The wedge breakout is a classic trend continuation pattern and so far it is signaling that the downtrend that started a little over a year ago will continue. Watch the level of strength in the next rally for signs of what’s to come.

Based on the wedge pattern alone, the target from the breakout is the beginning of the pattern at 45.22.
