Crude Oil closed lower on Friday as it extends the decline off last week's high. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it extends the decline off last week's high, the 50% retracement level of this winter's rally crossing is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing would signal that a short-term low has been posted.
