Gold closed sharply higher on Tuesday as it extended this year's rally. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning neutral to bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends this year's rally, upside targets will be hard to project now that October is trading into uncharted territory. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term top has been posted.
