Crude Oil Pressured By Euro Weakness and Greek Bailout Doubts

Crude oil was slightly lower in overnight trading as the euro has stalled in it's advance against the dollar on worries that an agreement to bail out Greece may be held up by a number of countries. Stochastics and RSI ifor WTI oil remain overbought. If November extends the rebound off August's low, the May-July downtrend line crossing near 92.13 is the next upside target.

Closes below Monday's low crossing at 85.17 would confirm that the corrective rally off August's low has ended while opening the door for a possible test of August's low crossing at 76.61 later this fall.

First resistance is Tuesday's high crossing at 90.60. Second resistance is the May-July downtrend line crossing near 92.13. First support is Monday's low crossing at 85.17. Second support is last Tuesday's low crossing at 83.47. Crude oil pivot point for Friday morning is 89.19.
