From the daily chart, we notice yesterday crude oil opened with a gap, then slipped back and closed in a new trading zone $65.90 - $68.50.

Hence, a close above the high end of the zone may send Brent oil towards $70.40. Further close above this level could resume bullish price action towards $72.30. That said, buyers would need to pay a close attention to the resistance area with the levels marked on the chart (zoomed in).

In turn, any close below the low end of the zone might encourage sellers to press towards the vicinity of 64.50/40. Further close below this area may see the price trading even lower towards $63.10. However, the daily support area and levels with the weekly support level underscored on the chart should be monitored closely.
