Crude oil [July contract] closed lower on Tuesday but remains above the 62% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 90.26. The low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Wednesday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain neutral to bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near term. If July extends this month's decline, the 75% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 85.69 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20 day moving average crossing at 95.74 are needed to confirm that a low has been posted. First resistance is the 10 day moving average crossing at 91.91. Second resistance is the 20 day moving average crossing at 95.74. First support is last Wednesday's low crossing at 89.28. Second support is the 75% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 85.69.
