Crude Oil closed lower due to profit taking on Tuesday as it consolidated some of the rally off last week's low but remains above the 10-day moving average crossing. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain 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.
