Crude Oil closed higher on Wednesday and the mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Thursday. 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. Closes below the 10-day moving average crossing would temper the near-term friendly outlook.
