Silver closed lower on Tuesday as it consolidates some of last week's rally. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bearish hinting that a short-term top might be in or is near. Closes below last Friday's low crossing would confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If it extends the rally off the late-October low, the July 2008 high crossing is the next upside target.
