Natural Gas Price Forecast – November 11, 2020

Natural Gas Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Natural gas rose to challenge important near-term resistance around $3.05 this afternoon. This is a confluent wave projection and the 38 percent retracement of the decline from $3.396. This is also a potential stalling point. However, today’s close above $3.03, the smaller than (0.618) target of the primary wave up from $2.821, calls for a test of $3.12 and possibly $3.18 during the next few days. The $3.12 objective is the equal to (1.00) target and 50 percent retracement. The $3.18 objective is the intermediate (1.382) target and 62 percent retracement. The latter objective is most important because settling above $3.18 would reflect a bullish shift in external factors (e.g. weather) and near-term sentiment.

Nevertheless, the move up is still corrective of the decline from $3.396 and also stalled near the 100-day moving average this afternoon. Additionally, because of the confluence and importance of resistance around $3.05, a test of $2.97 will probably take place first. Falling below this will call for key near-term support at $2.91. This is the 62 percent retracement of the rise from $2.821 and is in line with the $2.911 swing low. Taking out $2.91 will invalidate the wave up from $2.821 that calls for $3.12 and $3.18 and would shift odds back in favor of another test of $2.82 and likely lower.
