Crude's rally has stalled just shy of its 50% retracement. It is unclear if the secondary top is in place but a head and shoulders parallel line technique suggests that the high is in (see above). A break of the 5/6 low at 9463 would give scope to the 2/15 low at 8870 and then the 100% extension of the decline from 11483 at 8440. There is also a trendline that bears watching near 90. Any additional strength should see resistance at 10587 and 10711.

Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – (8), 0, 1
