Brent oil may retreat towards a support zone of $94.54-$94.89 per barrel as it faces a resistance of $96.32.
A similar one of $96.33 strengthens the resistance. Together, they may trigger a correction, which becomes immediate, as the rise from the Wednesday low of $92.06 looks too sharp to sustain.
A break above $96.32 will lead to a gain of $98.10. The current rise could be riding on wave C, which can travel to $98.10 or much higher.
On the daily chart, the oil found support around a rising trendline. It may test the resistance at $99.51, a break above, which could lead to a gain of $104.41.
Before moving towards $99.51, the oil may pull back towards a support zone of $92.09-$93.44.
