Gold closed higher on Wednesday as it extends the rally off February's low. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off February's low, January's high 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.
