CRUDE OIL Unchanged from yesterday: “Prices put in a Hammer candlestick above support at 83.34, the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement, hinting an upswing is ahead. Highly oversold RSI studies reinforce the risk of a rebound. Initial resistance lines up in the 90.14-88.54 area, marked by the early September swing top and the 61.8% Fib. Alternatively, a break lower initially exposes 80.16.”
