Brent oil buyers can ignore pullback from 18-day top

With hurricane Ida easing to category 3 storm and the market sentiment dwindles over geopolitical, as well as covid, woes, Brent oil prices step back from multi-day high towards $72.00 during early Monday. The commodity’s Asian session run-up couldn’t cross the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of July–August downside. However, a convergence of 200-SMA and 50% Fibonacci retracement level near $71.80 restricts the quote’s short-term downside. Hence, oil buyers may remain hopeful unless breaking $71.80, after which the losses could mount as the sellers march towards 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level, also comprising lows marked since July 20, around $68.20.

It’s worth noting that the fresh buying will aim for a clear upside break of 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of $73.35. Following that, a downward sloping trend line from early July, near $74. 40 , will be important to watch for Brent oil buyers. In a case where the commodity bulls manage to cross the $74. 40 hurdle, late July top near $76.60 may offer an intermediate halt during the rally towards the last month’s high near $78.45.
