Gold closed higher on Monday and above the 10-day moving average crossing signalling that a short-term low might be in or is near. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Tuesday. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but are turning neutral to bullish hinting that a short-term low might be in or is near. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term low has been posted. If it extends the decline off January's high, the 38% retracement level of the 2008-2009-rally crossing is the next downside target.
