A look at daily closes warns that the slightly upward sloping trend over the past 10 months may be a large distribution (topping) pattern. Crude has dropped below its 20 day SMA now as well. Of note is that the rally/consolidation from the 2009 low consumed roughly twice the amount of time as the preceding decline. 7915 and 8170 are resistance levels.
