Natural Gas Prices Forecast

Friday’s small advance in prices of the commodity was in tandem of rising open interest and volume, which could be supportive of a near-term rebound.

In fact, Natural Gas continues to navigate the lower bound of the recent range and at shouting distance from May’s lows near the $1.80 level per MMBtu. The potential rebound, however, carries the potential to extend to the key barrier at $2.00, although a stronger catalyst is needed to extend the move further north on a sustainable fashion.
