Natural Gas Price Forecast – August 4, 2021

Natural Gas Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Natural gas rose to a new high of $4.205 and stalled just below the next major objective at $4.24. This is the most confluent target on the chart and a key projection for many of the largest and most important waves and subwaves up from the $2.516 swing low. Given the confluent and importance of $4.24, this could prove to be another stalling point. However, once met an eventual close above $4.24 is anticipated. Such a move will clear the way for a push toward $4.51 in the coming weeks.

With that said, while the pullback from $4.205 might have been profit-taking toward the end of the day the move warns that a test of at least $4.13 and possibly $4.06 could take place first. Without a sudden bearish shift in supply/demand factors, $4.06 is expected to hold. Key support and the barrier to a bearish near-term outlook is $3.98. Settling below $3.98 will clear the way for $3.93 and possibly $3.85 instead.
