Oil Market Forecast & Review 20th September 2013

November Crude Oil futures traded lower this week, but the market remained inside the broad $100.80 to $111.34 range. Several times this week, the market straddled a key retracement zone at $106.07 to $104.83. The main trend is still up on the weekly chart, but a market can only straddle a retracement zone for so long before traders grow tired and try to move it into another range.
