Technical Picture - Another Yawn

Why did oil rally to fresh new highs when the $USD was barely unchanged on the session? Because Goldman analysts were out early this morning pushing their new target of $85.00/barrel. Ha Ha! As if we've already forgotten about the commodity bubble. Anyone going long oil at these lofty prices is buying their shares from Goldman. My guess is that Goldman has a huge position in oil that they want to unload before the correction.

Jobs data tomorrow in pre-market.
