Is a Short Term Top in for Crude Oil?

Crude oil closed lower due to profit taking on Tuesday as it consolidated some of the rally off October's low. The low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought and are turning neutral to bearish hinting that a short term top might be in or is near.

If April extends this month's rally, the 2011 high crossing at 114.09 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 102.13 would confirm that a short term top has been posted.

First resistance is last Friday's high crossing at 109.95. Second resistance is the 2011 high crossing at 114.09. First support is the 10 day moving average crossing at 105.49. Second support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 102.13.
