Coffee closed lower on Thursday while extending the trading range of the past four weeks. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bearish signalling that a short-term top might be in or is near. Closes below the reaction low crossing are needed to confirm that a top has been posted. If it renews this winter's rally, monthly resistance crossing is the next upside target.
