Natural Gas Technical Analysis
Technically, the price finds some support from the stability of the 2.432 level, this support that we had referred to in our previous reports, which gave the price some positive momentum. This happened considering the dominance of the main bearish trend on the medium and short term along a slope line, as shown in the attached chart for a period. Negative pressure continued due to its trading below the simple moving average for the previous 50-day period.
In addition, we notice that the relative strength indicators have reached highly overbought areas, in an exaggerated manner compared to the price movement, which suggests the start of negative divergence in them.
Therefore, our negative expectations surrounding natural gas are still valid, especially in the event that breaking the aforementioned 2.432 support level will increase the negative pressure on it, to target the psychological support level at 2.00 directly.
