Technical Analysis

Brent

As OPEC+ continues to manipulate markets and demand is expected to increase as the summer kicks off, vaccinations increase, and economies reopen, prices could continue to climb. However, Iranian oil could cause prices to slip if deals can be reached.

Prices are testing the resistance level around 70, and will likely reflect downward off of it.

Nasdaq

Prices are trading within a channel and could bounce back up toward the resistance level.

Copper

Momentum has faded as the price approached an old resistance level, but prices could move higher after breaking down resistance.
