Upside Friday, 92.68 should contain initial strength, beyond which 94.04 is attainable intraday, able to contain session strength. A settlement above 94.04 signals 95.73 within 1-2 days, able to contain strength through the balance of next week, and the level to settle above for indicating upward continuation into the 97.96-98.78 region within 3-5 more days, where November Crude Oil can top out into contract expiration (October 22). Downside Friday, breaking/opening below 91.08 signals 89.89, likely contain initial selling, below which a retest of the 88.79 speed-line is expected intraday, able to contain selling into November activity. Holding above 88.79 should yield 98.78 over the next several weeks, while closing below 88.79 indicates a good October high, 83.24 then expected by the end of next week, 79.01 within several weeks, long-term support at 77.40 within 3-5 weeks, able to contain selling through the balance of the year (Re: broader complex).
