Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Monday natural gas extended its losses as discussed in our last update and declined to a lower trading zone $2.556- $2.650. On the following day, the price rebounded nearby the low end of the zone then rallied eying a test of the high end of it.
Hence, a close above the high end of the zone could convince more buyers to join the rally. This may send natural gas towards the vicinity of $2.725-37. Further close above this threshold could cause more bullishness towards $2.799. In that scenario, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart should be considered.

Further close below this area could mean more bearishness towards the vicinity of $2.349-40. Yet, the weekly support levels underscored on the chart should be monitored.
