Crude Oil closed sharply lower due to profit taking on Thursday. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. Closes below the reaction low crossing would confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If it extends last week's rally, the reaction high crossing is the next upside target.
