Gold closed higher on Monday and the high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Tuesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bullish signaling 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 the decline off January's high, the 25% retracement level of the 2009-2010-rally crossing is the next downside target.
