Brent crude futures gains are considered corrective with a bearish theme still intact. The break lower this week has confirmed a breach of trendline support drawn off the Nov 2, 2020 low and the 50-day EMA. This reinforces a bearish theme and opens $58.56 next, a Fibonacci retracement. On the upside, resistance is at $65.12, Mar 22 high. A move above this level is required to ease the current bearish pressure.
