Brent futures remain weak, edging to new weekly lows on Thursday before stabilising slightly. The move below the 50-day EMA last week looks convincing, with support now exposed at 66.43. To resume any incline, bulls need to again take out $74.47, the 76.4% retracement of the Jul 6 - 20 downleg. A break and close back above here opens key resistance at $76.80, Jul 6 high. A break of this hurdle would confirm a resumption of the broader uptrend. $66.91, Jul 20 low, is key support.
