Brent oil could be in for a pullback below $74.00, as the 4-hour chart is reporting a double top pattern and the bearish divergence of the relative strength index.  

4-hour chart

  • As seen above, $74.70 has emerged as strong resistance this week.  
  • More importantly, the several attempts made to beat that resistance have been accompanied by lower highs (bearish divergence) on the relative strength index (RSI).  
  • As a result, Brent could confirm a double top breakdown with a move below $73.96 – neckline support. That would create room for a fall back to $73.24.  
  • The case for a pullback, however, would weaken if the newfound resistance of $74.70 is breached.
