Gold closed higher on Friday as it extends the rally off January's low. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off January's low, the reaction high crossing is the next upside target. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing would temper the near-term friendly outlook in the market.
