China's apparent success in fighting the Delta variant of the coronavirus, with no cases of locally transmitted infections in the latest data. Moreover, on Monday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued full approval for the Pfizer/BioNTech two-dose vaccine. The World Health Organization reports the number of new Covid-19 cases "seems to be plateauing" after increasing for nearly two months.
Brent has always been the driver of economic recovery and development. In this article, we will discuss why the end of the pandemic is equal to the beginning of the new raw material cycle.

Brent futures, monthly chart
According to Tradingview data, the Brent price might get pumped during an upcoming month. There are three reasons for that:

- The bullish divergence occurred on the RSI.
- Two last monthly candles have long bottom shadows (it will be a great signal if the August price closes above $72, which is 50 Fibonacci level).
Short term period:
