CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices advanced as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A pullback from resistance at 108.89, the July 19 high, has opened the door for a test of the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. Breaking below this barrier would expose the 38.2% level at 102.70. Alternatively, a move above resistance initially exposes the 50% Fib expansion at 110.77.
