Crude Oil Traders Appear to Shrug Off Syria News....Prices Headed Lower

October crude oil closed lower on Wednesday as it consolidated some of Tuesday's key reversal up. The low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening when Thursday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are bearish hinting that a short term top might be in or is near. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 106.46 are needed to confirm that a short term top has been posted. If October renews this summer's rally, weekly resistance crossing at 114.83 is the next upside target. First resistance is last Wednesday's high crossing at 112.24. Second resistance is weekly resistance crossing at 114.83. First support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 106.46. Second support is the reaction low crossing at 103.50.
