Crude oil is aiming to continue downward after prices narrowly broke another layer of chart support above the $48.00 figure. Near-term support is in the 45.11-17 area (January 13 low, 100% Fibonacci expansion), with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 123.6% level at 41.68. Alternatively, a turn back above the 76.4% Fib at 48.54clears the way for a challenge of the 61.8% expansion at 50.66.
