Natural Gas Technical Analysis

Technically, the price is trying in its recent trades to compensate part of what it incurred from previous losses, with the support of the stability of the support level 2.432. It gained some positive momentum, in addition to the presence of positive signals on the relative strength indicators.

However, the dominant trend remains the main bearish trend in the medium and short term, with continued negative pressure for its trading below the simple moving average for the previous 50-day period. Relative strength indicators have reached highly overbought areas, in an exaggerated manner compared to the price movement.

Therefore, our expectations suggest that natural gas will return to decline during its upcoming trading, especially if it breaks the 2.432 support, to then target the main support level at 2.00
