Crude Oil closed lower due to profit taking on Friday as it consolidated some of Thursday's rally. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off this month's low, June's high crossing is the next upside target. Closes below last Tuesday's low crossing would temper the near-term friendly outlook.
