  • Natural gas trades in a sideways move
  • Levels and signals to keep in focus

Natural Gas – Indecisive Traders

Last week, natural gas rallied to $1.857 then retreated and closed the weekly candlestick with a Doji pattern, indicating the market’s indecision at this stage.

This week, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) crossed above 50 hightailing the end of downtrend move.

Natural Gas DAILY Price CHART (DEc 5 – Mar 12, 2020) Zoomed IN

Natural gas daily price chart 12-03-20 zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we noticed that at the start of the week natural gas rebounded from its lowest in over eleven years at $1,630 , then rallied as some bears seemed to cut back. Additionally, the price moved to a higher trading zone $1.819 – $2.140. In the following day, the market closed above the 50-day average generating a bullish signal.

Today, natural gas tested the low end of the zone. A close below this level could send the market towards $1.656. Further close above this level might encourage bears to press towards $1.430. That said, the daily and weekly support levels underlined on the chart should be considered.

It’s worth noting that, natural gas develops a possible inverted head and shoulders pattern where the neck line resides at $2.024. If the price breaks and remains above the neckline it could rally towards $2.434.

On the other hand, any failure in closing below the low end reflects bear’s hesitation. This could cause a rally towards the high end of the zone. Further close above this level opens the door for more bullishness towards $2.296. Yet, the weekly resistance levels and area marked on the chart should be kept in focus.

From the four- hour chart, we noticed that on March 4 natural gas corrected its downtrend move as created a higher low at $1.794. Any violation to the Feb 20 high at 2.224 could trigger uptrend move.

Thus, break above $2.162 may cause a rally towards $2.267. Although, the weekly resistance level underscored on the chart should be monitored. In turn, any break below $1.610 may resume bearish price action towards $1.430.
