Brent: it’s time to take profit

TVC:UKOIL   Brent Crude Oil
Brent is relatively stable around its fresh mid-2015 highs above $68, though on Friday it started to signal a bearish correction and has briefly slipped under the psychological mark, which may trigger profit taking at very attractive levels.
The recent rally was fueled by a number of bullish factors, including further drop in the US crude oil             inventories, civil unrest in Iran, militant attacks in Libya, high compliance rate among OPEC+ members, and weak USD across the board.
Brent crude is now up by more than 10% from its December lows mainly due to political tensions in Iran. But the unrest hasn’t so far affected oil             production itself in the country, so this optimism may be overestimated.
For now, the barrel looks overbought, and this is another argument for a local correction in prices which are a step away from the next major barrier at $70. The proximity to this level may scare off some bulls as well. Nevertheless, as long as the US stockpiles continue to drop, and there is a threat of supply disruptions, the potential bearish moves will be limited, and the overall sentiment will remain upbeat.
