Crude Oil closed lower on Friday as it extends last week's decline. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI are 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 renews this winter's rally, weekly resistance crossing is the next upside target.
