Natural Gas upside potential and the level bulls need to break

Bookmark and Share
Natural Gas futures are rising in an impulsive pattern and so far follow textbook wave patterns that favor the bullish scenario. However price remains trapped in a trading range and bulls need to show signs of strength for a confirmed break out to happen.
Since November lows where volume was very high, price has staged an impulsive upward move with 5 clear wave s topping around 3.23. A corrective pull back of three waves have followed towards the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement which is a typical wave 2 retracement area. Price is now bouncing strongly upwards from that Fibo level.
A zoomed out view shows price trapped inside the black trading range and inside a long-term triangle pattern. We have confuence of resistance at 3.23-3.24 for current month contracts. Breaking above this level will be a very bullish signal that will at least push price towards 3.45. A rejection at the upper triangle boundary has already pushed price towards 3, but a break below it could push price towards the lower triangle boundary at 2.81. Patience is important.
