Oil prices were unmoved

16 January, 2017

Oil prices were unmoved on Friday as investors kept wondering whether the OPEC and non-OPEC members will abide the recent output cut agreement reached in 2016.

Current situation

After reaching 56.50 dollars per barrel Brent rolled back to 55.50. The benchmark started Friday in a consolidation. Brent extended its sideways trades during the European session. The “black gold” was range-bound-to lower during the day. The price broke the 50 and the 100-EMAs in the 4 hours chart. The 50-EMA crossed the 100-EMA downwards. The 50 and the 100-EMA were neutral while the 200-EMA headed higher. The resistance lies at 56.50, the support comes in at 55.50 dollars per barrel.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram returns the negative territory, that will indicate sellers’ growing strength. If MACD enters into the positive area the buyers will take control over the market. The RSI left the positive area and headed downwards.

Trading recommendations       

The bearish sentiment remained intact on Friday. A move below 55.50 dollars per barrel suggests further weakness of the oil prices. After breaking 54.50 the level 53.50 will come to the radar.
