Technical Analysis


The oil producer in the United States reduced the volume of production of raw materials against the backdrop of the raging storm “Laura”, which caused a confident increase in quotations. In addition, the American Petroleum Institute reported a day earlier about the decline in black gold reserves.

If we focus on the Fibonacci levels, calculated by the maximum and minimum since the beginning of the year, we can conclude that the Brent price will continue to strengthen.


The further trend of the asset will depend on whether the support level of 1 is broken. If the quotes drop below this reference point, we can see a long downtrend to 1.


We expect the growth of the currency pair to the previously broken support level of 0.
