Brent Crude Oil Price Stuck in a Pennant Pattern

Brent crude oil price is stuck in a pennant pattern as it approach $85/bbl on supply concerns about lower levels of world oil supply. What can traders expect next?

3 October, GKFX – Brent oil has charted a pennant pattern on the hourly chart. An upside break would signal a continuation of the rally from the low of $82.52 and may yield a break above the recent high of $85.42.

Could Oil See a Pennant Breakout?

The stacking order of the 50-hour exponential moving average (EMA), above the 100-hour EMA, above the 200-hour EMA, indicates the path of least resistance is on the higher side. The hourly chart relative strength index (RSI) has regained bullish bias and is again trending north. As a result, oil could see a pennant breakout in the next few hours.

The ascending 10-day EMA of $82.50 could come into play if the pennant is breached to the downside.
