Brent: moderate growth

November 2, 2015

Current trend

At the end of last week, the price of Brent crude oil strengthened moderately, being supported by the weakness of the US dollar which failed to hold its positions, gained after the recent Fed meeting.

At the same time, the oil prices remain under pressure from, first of all, strong imbalance between supply and demand, which is getting worse amid the Iranian situation and OPEC's decision to raise production quotas. Analysts suggest that the oil market will be facing continued oversupply until the second half of 2016.

Support and resistance

Bollinger bands indicator on the daily chart is directed horizontally, while the price range remains unchanged during several days. MACD is growing and keeping a moderate buy signal. Stochastic has reached the overbought zone and turned horizontally.
