Natural Gas Price Forecast – June 2, 2021

Natural Gas Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Natural gas pulled back a bit and formed an inside day. Yesterday’s $3.07 midpoint held on a closing basis but the wave down from $3.15 still has potential to extend. Trading will likely become more erratic during the next few days as the pullback still looks corrective. Near-term odds favor a continued rise, though they have been dampened. Overcoming $3.11 will call for a test of $3.16, a close above which will clear the way for a push toward $3.20 and higher.

Nevertheless, should the pullback from $3.15 extend first look for a test of $3.04 and possibly $3.00. Closing below $3.00 would imply that yesterday’s move up was another premature rally. In this scenario, prices could fall toward $2.96 and even $2.91 again, but overall, such a move would be reflective of natural gas settling into a wide trading range.
