Crude oil prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern, hinting a move higher may be brewing ahead. A daily close above 51.34 (14.6% Fibonacci retracement, trend line) exposes the 23.6% level at 53.27. Alternatively, a move below the 48.22-54 area (76.4% Fib expansion, August 10 low) opens the door for a test of the 45.11-17 zone (100% expansion, January 13 low).
