Crude Oil closed higher on Thursday as it consolidates above the 75% retracement level of the January-February decline crossing. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought, diverging but remain neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off February's low, the 87% retracement level of the January-February decline crossing is the next upside target.
