However, with negative signs appearing on Stochastic, we expect crude to move to the downside over an intraday basisinitiallytargeting 70.20 and then attempting to breach it to open the way to target levels around $65.00 per barrel. Notice: the daily close must remain below 72.90, so that the downside direction may continue.
