March Brent still not managed a close above last week’s high of 117.07 and could see a drift lower to 116.14 now. The market looks very over bought so a break lower is possible for 115.50/40 but good support here could hold the downside. Any longs will need a stop below 114.90 for 114.40/25 as the next support area.

117.07/23 is resistance but a break through here targets 2012 second half highs at 117.95. With the market so overbought this should hold the top side and offer a selling opportunity but stops needed above 118.40. We could then stretch to 119.80/120.00.
