Crude Oil closed sharply lower and The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a low has been posted. If it renews this summer's decline, the 75% retracement level of the 2009-2011-rally crossing is the next downside target.
