Nat-Gas DAILY Price CHART (JUL 23, 2018 – Mar 4, 2020) Zoomed Out
Natural Gas DAILY Price CHART (DEc 5 – Mar 4, 2020) Zoomed IN
Looking at the daily chart, we noticed that yesterday natural gas moved to a higher trading zone $1.798 - $2.140 providing a bullish signal. Additionally, we spotted bullish divergence between the price and RSI as the first created a low with lower low meanwhile, the latter created a low with a higher low highlighting a possible reversal of current downtrend.
Hence, the price could be on the way for a test of the high end of the zone. Further close above this level might encourage bulls to push towards $2.296. That said, the weekly resistance level marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.
On the flip-side, any close below the low end of the zone paves the way for bears to possibly press the price towards $1.610. Further close below that level could mean more bearishness towards $1.248. Special attention should be paid to the daily and weekly support levels printed on the chart as some traders may join/exit around these points.
Natural Gas price Four-Hour PRICE CHART (DEC 29 – Mar 4, 2020)
From the four- hour chart, we noticed that on Monday natural gas broke above the downtrend line originated from the Feb 20 high at $2.024 eyeing a test of $1.915. Yet, the price might rebound from the 26 high at $1.886 and develop inverted head and shoulders pattern.
Thus, a break above $1.915 may cause a rally towards the high end of current trading zone discussed on the daily chart. Although, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart should be considered. On the other hand, a break below $1,745 may send the price towards $1.645. Nonetheless, the daily support level underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.
