Additionally, the market broke above the downtrend line originated form the Nov 24 high at $2.739 eyeing a test of $2.050, see the chart (zoomed out).

Further close above this level, opens the door for bulls to take charge and rally natural gas towards $2.209. That said, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.
