Natural Gas Prices Forecast

The recovery in prices of Natural Gas extended the upside momentum on Thursday, although a surpass of the $1.90 mark still remains elusive for the time being. Against this, rising open interest opens the door to the continuation of the rebound, at least in the short-term horizon.

In fact, Natural Gas met buying interest in the $1.77 region per MMBtu on Monday. Further upside is therefore expected to meet interim hurdle at Wednesday’s top near $1.90 ahead of the key $2.00 mark. On the downside, the $1.680 region could re-emerge on the horizon in case sellers regain the upper hand ahead of the 2020 low at $1.574 (April 2).
