Natural Gas Has Turned Highly Volatile

Bookmark and Share

Natural Gas Futures--- Natural gas futures in the January contract settled last Friday in New York at 2.91 while currently trading at 3.11 up about 20 points for the trading week experiencing extremely volatile conditions on a day-to-day basis as it looks to me that a bottoming pattern is starting to take place as I'm currently not involved, but I'm looking at a possible bullish position soon.

Extremely warm weather in the Midwestern part of the United States is what is causing some of this volatility to the downside and then weather reports stating that December could be extremely cold sending volatility to the upside as prices hit a yearly low last Friday and then traded as high as 3.21 earlier in the week as I'm advising clients to avoid this market at the present time and be patient.

Weather temperatures in the state of Illinois come Monday are going to be around 62 which is remarkable in my opinion as now we enter the volatile month of December, however we are not experiencing cool temperatures at all but that can change very quickly, however prices are still trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average as the short term trend is lower, but I do think the downside is limited and its very good to see high volatility enter this market as I do think a possible retest of the 2.91 level could happen early next week.
