Looking at the daily chart, we notice at the start of the week natural gas entered a higher trading zone $2.340- $2.490. On the following day, the price tried to rally to the next zone however, natural gas reverted back to the zone as some buyers took profits.

Thus, a close below the low end of the zone could offer sellers the opportunity to take charge and press natural gas towards $2.210. Further close below this level could embolden more sellers to join the market and lead the price towards $2,124. In that scenario, a special attention needs to be paid to the weekly support level and areas marked on the chart (zoomed in) as some sellers could take profit at these points.

On the flip-side, a close above the high end of the zone may push the price towards the vicinity $2.552-56. Further close above this area could entice market’s participants to rally the price towards the vicinity of $2.642-50. That said, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart should be considered.

Natural Gas price Four-Hour PRICE CHART (Nov 5 – DEc 5, 2019)

Natural Gas Four- Hour price chart 05-12-19

From the four- hour chart, we notice on Nov 10 natural gas started a downtrend move as opened with breakaway gap then followed in the week after with a runaway gap. On Nov 27, the price rebounded from $2.555 in multiple occasions and this accelerated downtrend move causing more losses. On Dec 3, natural gas failed to clear $2.500 handle.

Thus, a break below $2.258 could resume bearish price action towards $2.162. Although, the support level marked at $2.210 should be kept in focus. On the flipside, a successful break above $2.500 handle could push natural gas towards the vicinity of $2.552-56. Nevertheless, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.

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