Gold closed lower on Friday and the low-range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI are neutral to bearish hinting that a short-term top might be in or is near. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If it extends this year's rally, upside targets will be hard to project now that October is trading into uncharted territory.
