Natural Gas Price Forecast – August 26, 2020

Natural Gas Near-Term Outlook

Tomorrow’s outlook for October natural gas leans negative after confirming an intra-day double top that formed between the $2.658 and $2.654 swing highs. The double top was confirmed by today’s close below the $2.564 swing low and the pattern’s target is $2.47. Double tops like this one meet their target 64 percent of the time.

The decline will not likely last much longer because the move down from $2.658 forms a corrective wave in a larger scale five-wave uptrend. There is also immediate support at $2.50 that may prove to be a stalling point early tomorrow. This is in line with the larger than (1.618) target of the primary wave down from $2.658 and the 62 percent retracement of the rise from $2.424. Therefore, closing below $2.47 is doubtful. However, this would clear the way for a larger correction to challenge $2.39 and possibly lower.

Once the $2.47 target is met odds for a continued rise will increase. However, should $2.50 hold, look for initial resistance at $2.57, and then $2.61. Settling above $2.61 would strongly imply that the correction is complete and clear the way for $2.67 and higher.
