Gold closed higher on Thursday and the high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning 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 renews last week's decline, the reaction low crossing is the next downside target.
