Crude oil prices resumed their push downward, overturning a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern and dropping to the lowest level in seven months. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 46.72 exposes the 45.17-38 area (January 13 low, 50% level). Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% Fib at 48.39 opens the door for a test of the August 11 high at 51.08.
