Technical Analysis


Pfizer and BioNTech announced yesterday the successful completion of Phase III trials of the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine has been shown to be 90% effective in preventing coronavirus disease. The registration of the drug may take place as early as the third week of November. The news caused a violent reaction from the market, especially from the oil sector. At the moment, the price of Brent has risen in price by more than 8%.

If you focus on technical analysis and Fibonacci levels, it becomes clear that now Brent may rise in price to the level of 51.20.


The collapse of gold led to the formation of a bearish engulfing candlestick pattern. The downtrend may continue.


The currency pair may resume its decline, as the chart is close to the upper border of the descending channel.
