Coffee closed higher on Thursday as it extends this week's rally. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it renews this year's rally, monthly resistance crossing is the next upside target. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted.
