Crude Oil closed unchanged on Thursday and below the 20-day moving average crossing signalling that a short-term top has likely been posted. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning bearish hinting that a short-term top might be in or is near. Closes below the reaction low crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If it renews the rally off June's low, the reaction high crossing is the next upside target.
