Brent oil is expected to break a support at $68.74 per barrel and fall towards the next support at $67.01.

The contract is riding on a wave c or wave 3 from $73.27. Both of these waves are capable of travelling to $68.74. However, they may extend much further.

A retracement analysis on the uptrend from the December 26, 2018 low of $49.93 to the April 25 high of $75.60 suggests a much lower target at $65.79, the 38.2 percent level, as it is pretty certain that the support at $69.53 could be broken, once oil falls to $68.74.

On the daily chart, the current fall is regarded as a continuation of the preceding downtrend from $86.74. Driven by a powerful wave (C), oil may plunge into a range of $52.85-$61.54, formed by its 61.8 percent and the 38.2 percent projection levels.
