President Obama Looks into Oil Manipulation … Pure Political Theater

This is just pure political pandering to the masses. The world oil market does not just revolve around the US anymore. India and China are increasing players and are buying more oil in the world markets. It is the demand from the world for energy that is pushing prices higher, not the speculators.

And speaking of higher, crude oil [May contract] closed higher on Tuesday as it extended the rally off last week's low. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signaling that a low might be in or is near.

Closes above the 20 day moving average crossing at 104.25 are needed to confirm that a short term low has been posted. If May renews the decline off March's high, the 38% retracement level of the October-March rally crossing at 97.84 is the next downside target.

First resistance is the 20 day moving average crossing near 104.25. Second resistance is the reaction high crossing at 105.49. First support is last Tuesday's low crossing at 100.68. Second support is the 38% retracement level of the October-March rally crossing at 97.84.
