Gold closed slightly higher on Tuesday due to profit taking triggered by strength in the US Dollar. A late-day rally tempered early losses and the high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If it extends the rally off February's low, January's high crossing is the next upside target.
