Crude Oil Technical Outlook For Wednesday Morning Sept. 14th

Crude oil met strong resistance in overnight trading as the continued financial crisis in Europe weighs on traders. Worse then expected retail spending in the U.S., the IEA cut in global oil consumption forecasts for 2011 and 2012, the prospect of Libyan oil production coming back online and the end of hurricane season all contribute to the inability of oil to push through the 50 moving average near $91 per barrel.

Closes below last Tuesday's low crossing at 83.47 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. If November extends the rebound off August's low, the May-July downtrend line crossing near 92.92 is the next upside target. WTI Stochastics and RSI are overbought this morning.

First resistance is last Wednesday's high crossing at 90.48. Second resistance is the May-July downtrend line crossing near 92.66. First support is last Tuesday's low crossing at 83.47. Second support is the reaction low crossing at 79.76. Crude oil pivot point for Wednesday morning trading is 89.51.
