Crude oil closed lower on Monday but remains above the 87% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 81.36. The low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Tuesday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. Closes above the 20 day moving average crossing at 88.81 are needed to confirm that a low has been posted.
