EMA & MACD crossover, a potential early entry for Brent Crude?

FX_IDC:USDBRO   U.S. DOLLAR / BRENT CRUDE OIL
Trade set up - Enter on a daily close above the 10 day EMA with stops below the previous weekly low of 58.35 and a short-term price target of 70.00 - 71.00, looking to add to the position once broken above the downtrend channel .

Why we like this trade - Technically speaking, price looks to have found some support around the Feb 2017 high after the recent 33% onslaught of crude prices since late September. With a recent MACD crossover and bullish weekly close last week, it may be an early signal for a change in direction. We are looking for a close above the 10day EMA as an entry signal which seems to be holding true using the MACD crossover and oversold RSI for support in our conclusion.We've also seen a strong draw of 10m barrels in the weekly API crude inventory report, which gives us some confidence tonights official DoE report should follow suit.

That said, a break below the recent low could indicate further downside with the recent price support simply a rest for sellers looking to target $45-50 a barrel.
