Technical Analysis

Brent

OPEC’s internal discords are becoming a threat to the stability of the oil price. Not so long ago, Brent was marching at $78. After a series of sessions that only revealed disputes among the OPEC country members, Brent is at $73 now.

Technically, the oil price is now testing the lower border of the uptrend that was there for four months. If it drops further, this trend may be considered invalid.

FTSE 100

FTSE dropped slightly below the psychological support of 7,000. If it doesn’t bounce back soon, it will be safe to assume that the index is going into a short-term decline.

Gold

The gold price is moving upwards again. If bulls keep pressing, 1,850 may be the closest mid-term target.
