Natural Gas: Decent support seen around $2.70/MMBtu

The selling pressure around natural gas remains contained by the $2.70 region for the time being. Friday’s negative price action was amidst rising open interest, which is indicative that a move lower is still possible in the very near-term. Against this, there is a solid contention area in the $2.40 level per MMBtu, where coincides the 2021 low (January 22) and the 200-day SMA ($2.422).
