Friday’s Technical Analysis: WTI Crude Oil
WTI Crude Oil closed lower Thursday as it posted a possible upside reversal indicating that a short term low may be in or close.
The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Friday’s US session opens.
Stochastics and the RSI are Neutral to Bearish indicating that sideways to lower prices are possible near term.
If WTI Crude Oil extends the decline off of the June high, the 50% Fibo retracement mark of the 2009-2011 rally crossing is the next Southside target.
Closes above the reaction high crossing are needed to confirm that a low is in.
