Natural Gas Price Forecast – December 2, 2020

Natural Gas Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Natural gas took out the $2.823 swing low and confirmed the small double top that formed around $3.00. Natural gas also settled below the 62 percent retracement of the rise from $2.656. Odds favor a continued decline and the waves and subwaves down from $3.002 call for a test of at least $2.70 and likely $2.66 tomorrow. The double top’s target is in line $2.66. The $2.66 objective is key because this is also the equal to (1.00) target of the wave down from $3.507 and the smaller than (0.618) target of the subwave down from $3.204. Settling below $2.66 will clear the way for the next leg of the move down to $2.54 and eventually $2.47.

There are no bullish reversal patterns or signals that call for the move down to stall. Even so, should natural gas bounce before falling much lower look for initial resistance at $2.84. Rising above this will call for $2.90, which is expected to hold. Key resistance is $2.97, the smaller than target of the wave up from $2.656 and the 38 percent retracement of the decline from $3.507. Settling above $2.97 would clear the way for $3.09 and possibly higher.
