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.

Although, the psychological support level underlined on the chart should be considered. In turn, any break in the other direction i.e. above $1.879 may cause a rally towards $1.939. Nevertheless, the psychological resistance level printed on the chart should be watched closely.
