Looking at the daily chart, we noticed that at the start of this week Natural gas surged then closed above the 50-day average generating a bullish signal. Later on, the market climbed to current trading zone $1.850 - $2.050. Although, the price failed to overtake the downtrend line originated from the Jan 14 high at $2.225, indicating a possible bearish comeback.

Thus, a close below the low end of the zone could lead natural gas towards $1.655. Further close below that level may send the price even lower towards $1.430. That said, the daily and weekly support level and area marked on the chart ( zoomed in ) should be kept in focus.

On the flip-side, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone opens the door for a rally towards the high end of the zone. Further close above that level could mean more bullishness towards $2.139. In that scenario, the daily and weekly resistance areas and levels should be monitored.
