Gold closed lower on Tuesday and the low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bullish hinting 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 September's high, the 38% retracement level of the 2008-2011-rally crossing is the next downside target.
