"797×266"

CRUDE OIL closed higher on Tuesday and the highrange close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Wednesday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible nearterm. Closes below the 20day moving average crossing would confirm that a shortterm top has been posted. If it extends the rally off June's low, the 75% retracement level of this year's decline crossing is the next upside target.
