Brent: price continues declining

December 2, 2015

Current trend

On Tuesday, the price of Brent crude oil continued declining. Concerns about oversupply of the oil market still have a strong negative effect on the price of oil.

Market participants are waiting for the results of the upcoming OPEC meeting, due on Friday. OPEC is expected to keep its output target unchanged. Moreover, some analysts suggest that the price of oil might fall to $35 per barrel if the Federal Reserve raises interest rates at its December meeting.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands indicator on the daily chart is still directed horizontally, while the price range remains unchanged. MACD is keeping its strong downward trend. Stochastic has reached the oversold zone.

It is recommended to wait for clearer trading signals.

Support levels: 43.90 (1 December low), 43.43, 43.00 (near 16 November low), 42.08 (24 August low).

Resistance levels: 44.43, 45.00, 45.56, 46.00, 46.35 (24 November high), 46.80, 47.32, 48.00.
