Oil prices extended their gains

4 January, 2017

Oil prices extended their gains posting fresh 18-month highs following the news that Kuwait and Oman fulfill OPEC deal cut. The overall tone is positive as investors hope that an OPEC output cut deal will materialize this month.

Current situation

Brent had a positive start to 2017. The benchmark rallied to fresh daily top on Tuesday. Oil prices gapped higher at the daily open. An Asian attempt to reclaim 57.50 dollars per barrel failed and the price returned to the opening level. European traders made another attempt to break through the hurdle. They retook the level post-Europe open and headed towards 58.50. The benchmark was going to test the level in the NY session. Brent bounced off the 50-EMA in the 4 hours chart. The 50, 100 and 200 EMAs kept pointing higher in the same chart. The resistance lies at 57.50, the support comes in at 56.50 dollars per barrel.

The MACD histogram grew which indicates buyers’ strength. The RSI indicator remained within overvalued readings.

Trading recommendations

The overall outlook remains bullish, for rise towards 59.50 resistance area. However, the first buyers’ target is the level 58.50 dollars per barrel.
