The outlook for Brent futures is improving, with prices inching closer toward the bull trigger at $119.74. The contract has bounced well after challenging the key support at the 50-day EMA, which intersects at $101.06. A clear break of this average would suggest scope for a deeper decline and open $94.61, the Mar 16 low. Initial firm resistance to watch is $119.74, the Mar 24 high. A break would ease bearish pressure.
