Natural Gas Prices Forecast

Wednesday’s negative price action in futures of the MMBtu of Natural Gas was amidst diminishing open interest and volume, hinting at the likeliness that further declines appear somewhat contained for the time being.

Wednesday’s bullish attempt to the $1.90 neighbourhood and subsequent close into the negative territory sparked a correction lower which should meet initial support around the 55-day SMA, today at $1.763. Further south emerges the monthly lows in the $1.60 area. The resumption of the upside is expected to face strong barrier at the $2.00 mark seconded by the 200-day SMA at $2.121.
