Brent oil may test a support at $63.99, a break below which could cause a loss to $63.13 per barrel.

The support is identified as the 38.2 per cent retracement on the uptrend from $59.45 to $66.80. The trend has reversed around a resistance at $66.43, the 50 per cent retracement of the downtrend from $73.40 to $59.45.

Over the next one or two weeks, oil may fall towards $59.45. A realistic target could be $63.13 or $62.26. On the daily chart, oil is riding on a wave (C), the third wave of a big downtrend from the Oct. 3, 2018 high of $86.74.

This wave was disrupted by a bounce triggered by the support at $59.74, the 61.8 per cent retracement of the uptrend from $49.93 to $75.60. The bounce seems to have ended around $65.79, and the wave (C) has resumed towards $59.74.
