Brent oil - Bearish divergence, gasoline inventories rise

FX:UKOIL   Crude Oil (Brent)
Resistance - $52.83, $53.05, $54.00

Support - $52.43, $51.91, $51.50

  • Us weekly inventory data released yesterday showed inventories fell for the third consecutive week, dropping by 3.2 million barrels versus expectations for a 2.7 million-barrel drawdown. This is a good news since it shows suppliers trust the current rally in prices
  • However, gasoline inventories grew by 1 million barrels and distillates, which include diesel and heating oil             , rose by 1.8 million barrels. Markets were expecting a drawdown here as well. This might be a one-off figure but could be enough reason for bulls to take some profit, especially since the prices are overbought as per daily as well as intraday RSI .
  • Consequently, we may see prices breach support at $52.43 and drop to rising trend line support on hourly around $52.00 levels. A violation there might trigger a slide to $51.50.
  • On the other hand, a rebound from rising trend line level followed by a break above yesterday's high of $52.83 would shift risk in favor of a further rally towards $54.00 levels.
