CRUDE OIL closed higher on Monday and the highrange close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Tuesday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible nearterm. If it renews the rally off June's low, the 38% retracement level of this year's decline crossing is the next upside target. Closes below the 20day moving average crossing would temper the nearterm friendly outlook.
