Natural Gas Reloads For Another Price Rally

As a technical trader, one has to really learn to appreciate when a trade “reloads” for another move higher.  Much like the Gold base/bottom in April 2019 below $1300 that we called back in October 2018.  When a trend confirms and we can see the potential for upside profits, but price performs a “deep pullback” withing that initial trend setup – it is almost like we’re dreaming.

After the downside rotation in Gold setup in April 2019, the next move higher pushed Gold prices up to $1550 from levels near $1275 – what a great move that was.  Now, imagine Natural Gas may give us another chance to get long below $2.30 with an upside target near $3.00 before mid-November?  Incredible – right?

Read our original research post here : https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/has-the-basing-setup-in-natural-gas-completed/

Here it is, folks.  After setting up a very deep price base in August 2019, Natural Gas has, again, moved back into the basing zone and our historical price research still suggests October and November will be strongly positive for Natural Gas.  We believe the upside potential in Natural Gas could target $3.00 fairly quickly – possibly before mid-November 2019.

THIS DATA IS QUOTED FROM OUR ORIGINAL RESEARCH POST…

“Our research tools suggest that September has a 65% probability of rallying more than 6x the historical range.  This would suggest a rally potential of more than $2 exists in September for Natural Gas.  Our tools also suggest that October has a 75% probability of rallying more than 3.2x the historical range.  This would suggest a potential rally of more than $1.20 in October. “

This Weekly Natural Gas chart highlights the “bump” in price that happened in September and how price has fallen back into the basing zone.  It is almost as if the market forgot what Natural Gas should be doing, historically, at this time of the year.  Well, who cares.  If the markets are going to give us another chance at a +30% price rally – we’re not going to miss the opportunity to buy within the basing zone.

Our opinion is that any opportunity to buy below $2.40 is an adequate entry level.  Ideally, try to wait for levels below $2.30 if possible.  This new basing zone pricing may not last very long, so try to take advantage of lower prices when possible.  Ideally, the upside potential for this move should be fairly easy to target given the historical price patterns that consistently drive Natural Gas higher in October and November.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

As skilled traders, we have to learn to take advantage of when the markets provide us with these extreme opportunities and setups.  We believe any upside move above $2.75 to $2.80 would be a suitable outcome for this extended basing pattern.  Gutsy traders could attempt to hold for levels above $3.00 – but we’re not confident that extreme price level will be reached quickly.

One thing most traders don’t understand is that the extreme winter weather that just hit the US and Canada last week could be a fairly strong indicator of early demand for heating oil, natural gas and other consumer energy products as an early winter may be setting up.  Either way, we believe this setup is a gift for skilled technical traders – don’t miss out.

Has the Basing Setup In Natural Gas Completed?

Back in June 2019, we posted a research article suggesting that Natural Gas was setting up an extended basing pattern below $2.35 preparing for a seasonal rally that typically initiates in late August or early September.  We believe the basing pattern has nearly completed and now is the time to begin positioning for the upside price rally that we believe will hit in Natural Gas as early a September 5th or so.

Our original research posts to review :

June 10, 2019: NATURAL GAS MOVES INTO BASING ZONE

June 25, 2019: NATURAL GAS SETS UP BOTTOM PATTERN

Our research tools suggest that September has a 65% probability of rallying more than 6x the historical range.  This would suggest a rally potential of more than $2 exists in September for Natural Gas.  Our tools also suggest that October has a 75% probability of rallying more than 3.2x the historical range.  This would suggest a potential rally of more than $1.20 in October.

Combine those potential moves and probabilities over a 60-day span and we are talking about a $2.50 to $3.50 potential price rally with a 70%+ historical probability of success. But first, be sure to opt-in to our free market forecast newsletter.

Daily Natural Gas Chart

This Daily Natural Gas Chart highlights the price rotation as price continued to base below the $2.40 level.  We’ve also highlighted the basing range as a blue rectangle on this chart.  We expect the upside move to begin in early September and to continue to rally towards the $2.75 level before finding initial resistance.  It is very likely that this rally will build momentum as we end October and start into September.  It will not be “straight up” as we have drawn on this chart.

Weekly Natural Gas chart

This Weekly Natural Gas chart highlights our longer-term expectations for the price rally.  The initial move will likely end just below $3.00 (likely in the $2.75 to $2.95 range).  After that level is reached, we expect a bit of resistance as price rotates near the Bullish Fibonacci Price Trigger Level, then rallies beyond it to target levels above $3.65.  Once price moves above $3.50, we could experience a price spike as we had in 2018 where price reached as high as $5.00 in Natural Gas.  Skilled technical traders could play this move for incredible profits if they time their entries and exits well.

UGAZ 3x Long Natural Gas ETF Chart

We believe most skilled technical traders that want to avoid massive leveraged risks should consider trading UGAZ – the 3x Long Natural Gas ETF.  Yes, risks still exist in this trade as any further downside price rotation before a rally begins could present a moderate degree of loss.  Yet, we believe the upside potential for the rally and the historical data supporting the very strong probability for an upside price rally outweighs the risks at this time.  Support near $11 would be our ultimate downside price risk.  Any entry below $14 would be acceptable given the current setup and expectations.  Immediate upside expectations are for price to move towards the $18 level, then pause before moving even higher towards the $22 to $24 level.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Remember, we called this move over 60 days ago and are alerting you to the very real possibility that the basing pattern is complete.  We expect the upside price rally to begin very early in September at this point and the timing of this trade seems perfectly aligned with our historical price modeling systems and other predictive modeling tools.

Natural Gas and Crude Oil – Diverging Setups For Technical Traders

Over the past few weeks and months, we’ve been alerting our followers to the incredible setups in Natural Gas and Crude Oil.  If you’ve been following our research, you already know on May 21st we called for Oil to break down from $62 level with a target of $55 then $49 price levels.

We’ve been alerting that Natural Gas was setting up an incredible seasonal trade with a move that was likely to push lower into the $2.00 to $2.20 level – suggesting any move into this range would be a solid buying opportunity for the seasonal upside move.  Well, here we are about 35 days later and look at what happened.

Crude Oil Weekly Chart

The US/China trade issues and global economic turmoil is taking a toll on Crude Oil.  Price rotated downward very sharply last week with an incredible -8% downside move in one day.  Currently, price is resting just above the Moving Average and should soon breakdown below this level towards the $49 price level.  At that point, price should stall, briefly, before attempting to find support below $50.

Our Fibonacci price modeling system suggests true support is found near $45 and $40.  Be prepared for a potential downside move of -20% to -25% from current levels.

Natural Gas Weekly Chart

Natural Gas has done exactly what we expected.  On this Weekly chart, you can see our shaded BLUE support range area and our GREEN and RED arrows from months ago highlighting what we expected to happen in price.  Yes, price is lower than we currently expected, but it has aligned with our expected price rotation almost perfectly.

At this point, the sub $2.20 level is a perfect opportunity for skilled technical traders to prepare for the seasonal trend that will push Natural Gas back above the $2.65 to $3.15 level.  Allow us to go through our expectations with you so you understand how to plan for and trade this move.

August is typically moderately bearish for NG.  So expect to try to pick your entry for this trade in August.  The ratio of bearish price activity in August is 1.2x the bullish price activity.

September is STRONGLY BULLISH – with an upside ratio of 10x compared to historical downside price activity.  September is where we should see a big upside price move.

October is still STRONGLY BULLISH – with an upside ratio of 3x compared to historical downside price activity.

November is moderately bullish with a 1.3x upside ratio compared to downside price activity.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

This means two things.  First, Crude Oil should continue to breakdown and target the $49 price level over the next few days and weeks while Natural Gas sets up an incredible upside price setup below $2.25 for skilled technical traders.  Oil is moving lower because of lower demand related to the global economic slowdown and larger supply issues.  Natural Gas is setting up a seasonal pattern that could become a fantastic trading opportunity for traders that time their entries and understand the setup.  In late August or early September price should begin to rally well above $2.50 with an ultimate upside target of well above $3.00.

Natural Gas Sets Up Bottom Pattern

In less than two weeks, our prediction that Natural Gas would move lower into our “basing zone”, between $2.00 and $2.20, has come true.  Natural Gas has fallen into our expected basing/bottoming zone and traders should be looking to target low price entries as the extended setup of this base takes place.

You can read our original research post regarding our Natural Gas analysis from June 10, 2019: NATURAL GAS MOVES INTO BASING ZONE

It is our belief that anytime Natural Gas falls below $2.20, or lower, traders should consider jumping into NG related ETFs or NG future as this bottoming zone will likely push NG back above $2.35~$2.40 fairly quickly.  Historically, any price move to levels closer to $2.00 have been very strong support for Natural Gas and this early basing pattern is setting up for an incredible opportunity for traders.

Ideally, we are expecting an upside the month of July to represent continue basing/bottoming in NG where we expect NG prices to rotate between $2.00 and $2.75.  There is a moderate change that NG prices may attempt a move above $2.75 after July 20.

We believe August will result in a sideways downward sloping price pattern that may last only through the first 10 to 15+ days of August.  The month of August is typically relatively muted in terms of price trend but includes greater price volatility – bigger price bar ranges.

The big breakout move will likely begin to happen in late August or early September.  September, October, and November are all historically strong months for NG.  September is the strongest month historically, October represents about half the upside strength of September and November represents, again, about half the upside strength of October.

Overall, this basing/bottoming pattern in NG is something skilled traders do not want to lose focus of.  The opportunity at these sub $2.25 levels is incredible if traders are able to time their entries and plan for the August/September upside price launch.  Looking back at historical price patterns, we could begin an upside price bias (a slower moving upside price trend) in early July.  After NG hammers our a bottom near this $2.00 level and settles near support, the new trend should become evident as an upside price bias before the August/September liftoff.

This Daily NG chart shows the RED and CYAN Fibonacci projection levels (near $2.18 and $2.28).  These levels will act as both a floor and ceiling for the future price as the basing pattern continues.  Any breakdown in price below $2.18 would be a great entry level for skilled traders.  There is a potential that price could drift a bit lower, possibly down to near $2.00 over the next few weeks, but we believe the basing/bottoming setup is beginning and support will be found above $2.00.

This Weekly NG chart shows a BLUE rectangle that highlights the support level identified by our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system.  Right now, this support level is between $2.10 and $2.30.  These Fibonacci downward price projection points on the Weekly chart represent expected levels/targets for downward price SUPPORT to form.  In other words, from the last price peak, price should move lower and target these Fibonacci projected targets where they will likely stall, bottom or attempt to find support – potentially setting up a new price “trough”.

We believe the next upside price move will happen between now and July 25th where NG will move from the $2.15 level to somewhere near $2.55 to $2.65.  After that move, we expect the price of NG to stall briefly before beginning another leg higher towards $3.00 or higher.  Our expectations of that last leg are that it may begin near mid-August and really begin to accelerate as we get closer/into September.

Remember, this is a very early set up – we still have 40+ days of expected basing/bottoming before any real upside potential is likely.  Now is the time to trade this as short term 4~8% price objectives taking very skilled trades near the low price levels and targeting quick profits.  As we enter July and move into August, we suggest traders switch from the short-term scalping mode and begin to consider the September, October & November historical price patterns to truly understand the upside potential.

Take a look at that huge move in 2018 over those same three months (September, October, November) in the chart above.  That move started from the $2.65 level and ran all the way up to near $5.00.  The same thing could happen again this year with price originating from a $2.00 basing level.

I can tell you that huge moves are about to start unfolding not only in the energy sector but in metals, and stock indexes and some of these super cycles are going to last years.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

In short, Nat Gas is oversold and showing signs of a bounce.

As a technical analysis and trader since 1997 I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles, I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for both short-term swing trading and long-term investment capital. The opportunities are massive/life-changing if handled properly.

US Stock Market Setting Up A Pennant Formation

As we’ve been warning over the past few weeks and months, the current price rotation in the US stock market is very much related to the strength of the US Dollar and the continued Capital Shift that is taking place as trade issues and currency valuations drive investors into the US equity and debt markets as protection against risk.  We talk about some of these new Super-Cycles starting and how we can take advantage of them in this new guide.

The US Dollar stalled today after a recent price decline from just above $98 to a current level near $96.60.  Over the past 15+ months, the US Dollar has risen from lows near $88 to highs near $98 – an 11.2% price rally.  Meanwhile, many other foreign currencies have collapsed over this same span of time.

We believe the continued Capital Shift is driving further investment in the US stock market and debt market as a way to avoid the risks of further currency valuation declines and as a means of protecting wealth.  Until this currency dynamic changes, we expect the strength of the US economy and US Dollar to continue to push investors into the US equity markets.

This being said, a very interesting dynamic is starting to set up.  Gold and Silver have started to move higher while Oil, Natural Gas and other commodities are pushing lower.  This type of activity in the commodity markets suggests some increased fear is driving investors away from speculating on increased global economic activities and pushing capital into expectations of a market top or deeper correction.

We’ve read recently where institutional traders have started initiating heavy short positions in the US markets and we believe these investors have jumped the gun a bit.  We don’t see how or where a massive US market collapse is likely given the current strength in the US Dollar and the US economy.  Yes, at some point this dynamic may shift and at some point, we may see a fairly deep correction of 12% to 18%.  We believe that a top may happen in August or September 2019 – after the US stock market (DOW) reaches new all-time highs above $30k.

Right now, we believe the first rotation of our expected Pennant/Flag formation is starting to set up and we look for early signs in the DOW and TRAN charts.

This TRAN chart shows price rotation near the CYAN resistance level originating from the late April peak and spanning the early May price high.  We believe this resistance level may play a key role in understanding how and when the next upside price leg begins to advance.  We expect a downside price rotation to take place pushing the TRAN towards the $9600 level over the next few days/weeks.

This YM chart highlights a similar price pattern, but clearly illustrates one key difference – the New Price High.  This fundamental element of Fibonacci price theory is that any attempt to break a past critical price high which results in a “new price high” designates the current trend as Bullish.  Within Fibonacci price theory, price is always seeking to establish new price highs or new price lows – AT ALL TIMES.  Therefore, a new price high or new price low is very significant.

The TRAN chart may continue to consolidate below the CYAN resistance level whereas the YM chart may attempt to push higher, with a bullish bias, setting up a Pennant/Flag formation as we expect.  This would indicate that even though economic and transportation expectations are waning, the bullish bias in the YM suggests the Capital Shift factor is still pushing the US stock market upward.

Pay close attention to that big blue ellipse near the top of the chart.  We drew that in place many months ago as an indicator of where we believe critical resistance is should the markets attempt to push higher and attempt new all-time highs.

We still believe this resistance is valid and as price rotates into the Pennant/Flag formation, we’ll extend this resistance forward – carrying the same slope and angle forward.  If the YM is going to attempt a move to above $30k before our expected August/September 2019 top setup, it will have to push well above this resistance zone to accomplish this move.

Watch Gold and Silver over the next 3 to 4 weeks as any perceived weakness will push the precious metals higher still.  We believe Gold will reach $1450 this summer and possibly higher before August as smart money rotates into the safe havens in anticipation of a bear market.

Natural Gas Moves Into Basing Zone

After an incredible rally in Natural Gas that our researchers called perfectly in November 2018, another opportunity for an upside price move appears to be setting up for later this year. We believe the current price lows, near $2.30, are setting up for a bounce and then will drop and form a basing pattern near $2.00 before rocketing higher.  It is this last move to the downside which will set up the incredibly deep price base and oversold conditions for the upside price move in late August/September 2019.

We’re issuing this research post to alert all of our followers to our research and to allow for proper price rotation for this base to set up and conclude before jumping into any false triggers that may occur on the Daily or Weekly charts.

Start by taking a look at this Monthly NG chart showing how extended high price peaks are usually followed by extended price declines.  It is very unlikely that any upside price move will begin before late August or early September 2019.

In fact, our data mining utilities confirm this by suggesting that June, July, and August are all typically lower price months by a factor of 1.5:1 and 2:1 mostly over the past 24 years. September is the first monthly data point to break this cycle with a positive historical price bias of nearly 9:1.

Therefore, the closer we get to September 2019, the more likely we are going to see a basing in price near $2.00 (or below) and traders would be wise to prepare for this move before it happens.

Our Weekly Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting a moderate move upward of about $0.25 is likely over the next few weeks before price may rotate lower, again, and attempt to fall below the $2.25 level as it continues to rotate towards the ultimate base.

Our researchers believe the ultimate price base will be near $2.00 (roughly between $1.85 and $2.15) as our Weekly Fibonacci modeling tool is suggesting.  After price establishes the new price peak in late June, we’ll have more data to compare for the proper location of the ultimate price base.

This Daily chart highlights our expectations for NG over the next few weeks – fairly strong potential for a move higher, above $2.50, where the price will stall and reverse back to the downside.  Ultimately, this peak will turn out to be nothing more than required price rotation to support the ultimate base pattern setup later in August or September 2019.

Don’t get too excited about Natural Gas just yet.  The setup and future trade are in the process of creating a deep price base that will likely end near late August or early September 2019.  We believe September 2019 will be the breakout month for NG as a price advance really takes hold.  If historical data is any guide, the 9:1 upside bias of September following the 1.4:1 downside bias of August suggests that the September upside price move could push NG prices well above $3.50 or $4.00 very quickly.
