SINGAPORE: Brent oil may end its bounce around a resistance range of $73.51-$73.80 per barrel, as suggested by its wave pattern and a Fibonacci ratio analysis.

The range is formed by the 100% projection level of an upward wave c and the 7% retracement of the uptrend from $49.93 to $75.60.

The rise from the May 13 low of $69.72 looks like more a retracement of the fall from $75.60, than a continuation of the uptrend from $49.93. This rise was due to a support at $69.54. It may fail to extend above a strong resistance at $73.80.

Based on the current wave count, the wave c has an ultimate target at $73.51. Both the retracement and projection analysis suggest the bounce from $69.72 is ending.

On the daily chart, oil faces a resistance range of $73.02-$72.66, formed by the 7% projection level of a downward wave  (C) from $75.60 and the 23.6 percent retracement of the uptrend from $27.10 to $86.74. This resistance range also makes a further gain less likely.
