$100 Resistance Next Target For Crude Oil Bulls

Crude oil closed lower due to profit taking on Wednesday as it consolidated some of the rally off October's low. The mid range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. If December extends the rally off this month's low, the 62% retracement level of the May-October decline crossing at 100.08 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 91.15 are needed to confirm that a short term top has been posted. First resistance is the 62% retracement level of the May-October decline crossing at 100.08. Second resistance is the 75% retracement level of the May-October decline crossing at 105.41. First support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 91.15. Second support is the reaction low crossing at 89.17.

Natural gas was sharply lower on Wednesday as it extends this week's decline below broken trading range support crossing at 3.724. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain neutral to bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near term. If December extends this year's decline, monthly support crossing at 3.225 is the next downside target. Closes above the reaction high crossing at 3.978 are needed to confirm that a short term low has been posted. First resistance is the reaction high crossing at 3.978. Second resistance is the reaction high crossing at 4.039. First support is today's low crossing at 3.648. Second support is monthly support crossing at 3.225.
