Nat-Gas DAILY Price CHART (Nov 27 – FEB 6, 2020) Zoomed IN

Natural Gas Price Forecast: Nat Gas Chart Points Out a Reversal Pattern

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Jan 27 natural gas reversed to a lower trading zone $1.819 - $1.915. Later, the price rebounded in multiple times around the low end of the zone reflecting bear’s hesitation.

A close below the low end may end this hesitation and encourage bears to press towards $1.700. Further close below this level could cause more bearishness towards $1.643. That said, the weekly support levels underlined on the chary (zoomed in) should be considered.

In turn, a close above the high end of the zone could lead some bears to exit the market. This may send the price towards $2.034. Additionally, any break above the neckline of double bottom pattern located at $1,959 could cause a rally towards $2.069.

From the four- hour chart, we noticed on Jan 19 natural gas printed $1.815- its lowest level in nearly four years. Since then, the markrt stuck in sideways move.

A break above the Jan 23 high at $1.957 could cause a rally towards $2,034. Although, the psychological resistance level at $2.000 should be watched closely. On the flip side, a break below $1.771 may resume bearish price action towards $1.700. Nevertheless, the weekly support level underscored on the chart would be worth monitoring.
