Gold higher on Thursday as it extends some of the rally off January's low. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off January's low, January's high crossing is the next upside target. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing would confirm that a short-term top has been posted.
