Morning Report: Crude Oil Futures for November Settlement

We got slapped by volatility yesterday, although we expected-in yesterday's morning report- big swings among a range-trading phase; our entry point wasn't optimum enough. Anyhow, the overall bearish outlook has not invalidated yet, the 85.00 resistance level is limiting any upside attempt for the commodity. Currently, stochastic is attempting to cross over negatively where price is testing the 50 period SMA again; therefore, we continue to expect more downside attempts, and volatility to continue as well.

The trading range for the day is among the major support at 85.00 and the major resistance at 80.00The short-term trend is to the downside with steady daily closing below 100.00 targeting 65.00.
