Euro Rebound Gives Crude Oil Bulls Hope

Crude oil closed higher on Monday due mostly to a rebound in the Euro against the dollar. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Tuesday and bulls are under pressure to follow through if they stand a chance of gaining the upside momentum this week or anytime soon. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought, diverging and are turning neutral to bearish signaling that a short term top might be in or is near.

And we know traders are getting tired of hearing it but closes below the reaction low crossing at 83.20 would confirm an end to the corrective rally off August's low. Closes above the May-July downtrend line crossing near 92.66 would confirm an end to this summer's decline.

First resistance is still last Wednesday's high crossing at 90.48. Second resistance is the May-July downtrend line crossing near 92.66. First support is the reaction low crossing at 83.20. Second support is the reaction low crossing at 79.38.
