Crude Oil closed lower due to profit taking on Monday. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Tuesday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought and are turning bearish hinting that a short-term top is in or is near. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing would confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If it resumes the rally off February's low, the 75% retracement level of the January-February decline crossing is the next upside target.
