Little Fed [Atlanta President] Speaks and Crude Oil market Listens

Have Gold, Silver and Mining Stocks Bottomed?

So this is what happens when a fed president out of ATLANTA speaks? Crude oil closed higher due to short covering on Wednesday as it bounced off the 87% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 81.36. The mid range close sets the stage for a steady opening when Thursday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold and are turning neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term. Closes above the 20 day moving average crossing at 90.81 are needed to confirm that a low has been posted. If July extends this month's decline, last October's low crossing at 77.05 is the next downside target. First resistance is the 10 day moving average crossing at 87.31. Second resistance is the 20 day moving average crossing at 90.81. First support is Monday's low crossing at 81.21. Second support is last October's low crossing at 77.05.
