SINGAPORE: Brent oil may retest a resistance at $72.26 per barrel, a break above which could lead to a gain to $73.46.
The resistance is provided by the 100 percent projection levels of a wave (c) from $64.02. The projection analysis reveals a support at 71.14, the 86.4 percent level, around which oil managed to stabilize.

A break below $71.14 could cause a loss into the range of $69.11-$70.32. On the daily chart, oil made false break above a resistance at $72.66. It is expected to consolidate around this level for a few days.
