Was There an Explosion or Not?

Commodity traders rode a see saw session as markets spiked on news of an oil pipeline explosion in Saudi Arabia. Only to trader lower as Saudi officials deny that any event took place at all.

Still, crude oil closed higher on Thursday extending the rebound off Tuesday's low. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term.

If April extends this winter's rally, the 2011 high crossing at 114.09 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 103.09 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 106.78. Second support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 103.09.
