Brent oil moved away from session lows, supported by the EIA report. Some traders are ready to bet on a rebound after the pullback. In the near term, ongoing Gaza ceasefire negotiations may have a material impact on Brent oil. In case geopolitical premium declines, oil markets may find themselves under more pressure.

At this point, the technical picture remains favorable for the bulls, as Brent oil did not manage to settle below the support at $84.50 – $85.00.
