Gold closed lower on Monday as it consolidates below the 20-day moving average. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Tuesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it extends this month's decline, the reaction low crossing is the next downside target. If it renews this year's rally into uncharted territory, upside target are hard to project.
