Crude oil prices are working on a seventh consecutive down day, dropping to the lowest level in seven months. Near-term support is in the 45.17-46.03 area (January 13 low, 23.6% Fib expansion), with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 42.91. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib at 47.96 clears the way for a challenge of the August 11 high at 51.08.
