Brent is firmer and nearing the key band of resistance between $60.94 - $61.13.
This zone is represented by the Aug 22 high, 50-day EMA and Aug 14 high. A clear
break is required to negate the recent bearish threats highlighted this week.
This would pave the way for a climb towards trendline resistance at $61.86. A
move above the trendline would reinforce the outlook for bulls. On the downside,
the first bear trigger lies at $57.74, the Aug 26 low.
