Technical Analysis


After the escalation of the situation around Iran, the country was seriously threatened by UN sanctions. Such a scenario is still relevant, therefore, the leaders of the Islamic Republic show their correctness. This time, the president said that Iran has no plans to develop nuclear weapons.

The Brent chart has already gone beyond the channel. It is worth noting that the asset does not have significant support levels, so it is likely to fall to 57.00 or lower.


To strengthen to 1.72550, the pair has to gain a foothold above the Fibonacci level, located at 1.71300.


The currency pair should be sold since there is the potential for its reduction inside the channel to 0.96000.
