Natural Gas Daily price chart 14-11-19 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we notice at the start of this week natural gas opened below the neckline of inverted head and shoulders and declined towards the lower trading zone $2.650- $2.735. Yesterday, sellers pressed below the low end however, the price reverted back and closed above.

Hence, a successful close below the low end could send natural gas towards the vicinity of $2.556-52. Nevertheless, the weekly support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

That said, a close in the other direction i.e. above the high end of the zone (the neckline of inverted head and shoulders) could push natural gas towards $2.799. However, the daily and level underlined on the chart should be monitored.

Natural Gas price Four-Hour PRICE CHART (Oct 24 – Nov 14, 2019)

Natural Gas Four Hour price chart 14-11-19

From the four- hour chart, we notice on Thursday natural gas reversed course. This week the price has started a downtrend move after breaking below $2.780.

Thus, sellers may resume bearish price action below $2,617 towards $2.552. In that scenario, the weekly support level underscored on the chart would be worth monitoring.

On the other hand, a break above $2.771 could see the price trading even higher towards $2.799. Although, the daily resistance level underlined on the chart should be considered.

See the chart to know more about key levels to monitor in a further bullish/bearish move.
