Brent Crude is holding on to the 2 week up trend and if we can hold on to 111.70 today we can retest 112.40/50 with a break higher to target last week’s high at 112.90. Expect the market to struggle here as we start to look over bought in the short term.

Try shorts with a stop above 113.30 for 113.63 and possibly 114.31/50 which fills a small gap.

Below 111.70 we find good support at 111.43/53 which should see us bounce and could mark the low for today if tested. However a break of 111.10 is then likely to pressure prices down to 110.54/38. Failure here today then sets us up for further losses to a target of 109.80. Good chance of a bounce off this level today but if attempting longs here we need a stop below 109.50 for 109.05.
