Crude Oil posted an inside day with a lower close on Tuesday as it consolidates some of the rally off last Friday's low. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off last Friday's low, January's high crossing is the next upside target. If it renews this winter's rally, weekly resistance crossing is the next upside target.
