Last week’s activity in Brent futures resulted in a break of the 20-day EMA and the pair remain soft. The move lower highlights the start of a corrective cycle and suggests potential for an extension towards $85.49, the 50-day EMA. A clear break of this average is required to suggest scope for a deeper retracement. Key resistance and the bull trigger has been defined at $92.18, the Apr 12 high. A break would resume the uptrend.
