Will Natural Gas Test The 2.90 Level ?

Bookmark and Share

Natural Gas Futures--- Natural gas futures in the January contract are trading lower by 5 points at 3.00 continuing its bearish momentum as I am not currently involved in this market, but I'm looking at entering into a bullish position once the chart structure improves as the risk/reward are not in your favor at the present time.

I did not believe the recent rally from the contract low around 2.90 which was hit on November 24th & then traded as high as 3.22 three days later on massive short covering as now prices have come down retesting major support as we are going to be 65 in the state of Illinois right near another record temperature as we are in the 1st week of December which is remarkable.

The colder temperatures will start to arrive later this week as that should lend some support to natural gas but I do think there's a possibility that we will retest the 2.90 level possibly creating a double bottom on the daily chart as prices are still trading under their 20 and 100 day moving average as the trend still is to the downside.

Volatility in natural gas certainly has increased tremendously over the last week as this is going to be the norm going forward as it should even get more volatile in the months of January and February so let's be patient as I will only be looking at a bullish position as I will not go short this market as I think prices are limited to the downside.
