Brent oil may test a support at $64.78, a break below which could cause a loss to $62.74 per barrel.

The support is identified as the 38.2% retracement on the downtrend from $73.40 to $59.45. Oil failed to break a resistance at $66.43. The failure confirmed the completion of a five-wave cycle from the June 18 low of $60.25. Further confirmation is a brief piercing below the June 27 low of $65.63.

The uptrend from the June 5 low of $59.45 could have reversed. Oil may retrace towards this level over the next few weeks. On the daily chart, oil is riding on a wave (C), the third wave of a big downtrend from the October 3, 2018 high of $86.74. A projection analysis reveals a support at $59.74 and a resistance at $65.79.

These two levels roughly define a price band for the bounce from $59.45. It seems that the bounce is ending around $65.79. The wave (C) may resume towards $59.74.
