Crude oil closed higher on Thursday as it consolidates above the 87% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 81.36. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Friday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are neutral to bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near term. If July renews this spring's decline, last October's low crossing at 77.05 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20 day moving average crossing at 87.21 are needed to confirm that a low has been posted. First resistance is the reaction high crossing at 87.03. Second resistance is the 20 day moving average crossing at 87.21. First support is Tuesday's low crossing at 81.07. Second support is last October's low crossing at 77.05.

Natural gas closed sharply higher on Thursday and above the 20 day moving average crossing at 2.487 signaling that a double bottom with April's low appears to have been posted. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold and are turning neutral to bullish with today's rally hinting that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. Multiple closes above the 20 day moving average crossing at 2.487 are needed to confirm that a short term low has been posted. If July renews the decline off May's high, April's low crossing at 2.136 is the next downside target. First resistance is today's high crossing at 2.522. Second resistance is May's high crossing at 2.838. First support is today's low crossing at 2.168. Second support is April's low crossing at 2.136.

Gold closed higher on Thursday as it extends this week's rally off last Friday's low. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Friday's night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are turning bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. If August renews the rally off May's low, April's high crossing at 1674.30 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 1591.10 are needed to confirm that a short term top has been posted. First resistance is the reaction high crossing at 1632.00.
