Natural Gas Close To Filling Price Gap

Bookmark and Share

Natural Gas Futures--- Natural gas futures in the January contract are currently down 4 points at 3.15 continuing its short-term bearish trend & if you have been reading my previous blogs you understand that I think the price gap which was created over 2 weeks ago will be filled around the 3.05/3.10 level as then I will be interested in a possible bullish position once that situation occurs.

Natural gas prices are now trading under their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the short-term trend is lower, however its basically been sideways over the last 6 months as we are entering the volatile winter season as I will not take a short position in this commodity.

At the current time my only bullish recommendation in the energy sector is in crude oil as natural gas and oil are completely different products and can go in opposite directions as warmer temperatures in the Midwestern part of the United States is to blame for the recent downdraft in prices, however I think that will change quickly as we start to enter the month of December.

Natural gas prices gaped higher 2 weeks ago due to the fact that we had record cold temperatures sending prices sharply higher, however I would be very surprised if this market doesn't trade back down to the 3.05 level in the coming days ahead so be patient as I still think gas prices are cheap especially heading into the extremely volatile winter season as I think the downside is quite limited.
