Crude Oil closed slightly higher on Thursday as it extends the rally off August's low. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. Closes above the reaction high crossing are needed to confirm that a low has been posted. If it renews this summer's decline, the 75% retracement level of the 2009-2011-rally crossing is the next downside target.
