Crude oil bulls maintain a "weak" technical adavantage

September Nymex crude oil closed up $0.04 at $106.87 today. Prices closed nearer the session high today. Bulls have the overall near term technical advantage mostly due to supply disruptions in Libya and escalating violence in Egypt..

September natural gas closed up 5.7 cents at $3.342 today. Prices closed near mid range today on more short covering. Prices last week hit a 13 1/2 month low. The natural gas bears still have the solid near term technical advantage, but may now be exhausted following the recent selling pressure. Prices are in a steep three month old downtrend on the daily bar chart.
