bearish patterns in crude;October Nymex crude oil futures saw a big rebound from the August low, but recent price action has been choppy and sideways as the market pauses. There are still a couple of early technical clues that the market has bottomed out, but the crude oil bulls need to show fresh power soon to reaffirm those clues. A bearish weekly low close, or close to it, on Friday would deflate the bulls and would also suggest at least a retest of the August low.
