Natural Gas Price Forecast – July 22, 2020

Natural Gas Price Forecast

Natural gas rallied again today after falling to $1.622 in early trading hours. The subsequent move up met the $1.698 equal to (1.00) target of the wave up from $1.605. This wave is now poised to reach its $1.73 intermediate (1.382) target tomorrow. This is also the 38 percent retracement of the decline from $1.924 and is in line with the 21-day moving average. Closing above $1.73 would imply that support around $1.60 will continue to hold and that prices are settling into a wide trading range between nominally $1.60 and $1.86 for the interim.

Nevertheless, the move up may still be corrective, and until at least $1.73 is overcome there is still a reasonable chance for the move down to extend. For now, though, support at $1.64, the 62 percent retracement of the rise from $1.605, is expected to hold. Falling below this will call for another attempt at $1.59. Settling below $1.59 would confirm a break below the critical $1.60 level and shift near-term odds in favor of $1.51 and possibly lower before the August contract expires on July 29.
