DayTraderRockStar's How to Trade the Markets. The first step
Crude oil rose further to as high as 103.74 last week but failed to sustain above 103.37 resistance and retreated. Initial bias remains neutral this week for some consolidations first. Nonetheless, near term outlook will remain bullish as long as 98.30 minor support holds. We'd expect rise form 74.95 to resume sooner or later. Above 103.74 will target 114.83 key resistance next.
