Brent futures bounced off the short-term ascending trend line on Wednesday, failing to extend the downward move. Currently, the commodity is trying to overcome the 40-day simple moving average (SMA) and the 64.85 resistance level. The RSI turned higher but is still the near 50 level, while the stochastic oscillator is gaining momentum after the bullish cross within its %K and %D lines in the daily timeframe. The bulls would probably challenge the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the upleg from 56.10 to 71.30 near 65.48. [..]

The short and medium-term biases look positive as the RSI keeps gaining ground in the overbought territory, while the MACD completed a positive crossover with its trigger line above the zero line in the 4-hour chart. Immediate resistance to further gains would likely come from 1,556, which was last touched on September 4. If there is a successful break above this area, further resistance [..]
