Natural Gas is trading above the short and long-term moving averages, the trend continues to be upwards, but the price could face resistance close to the upper Bollinger band.
The relative strength index is at 63%; once the RSI gets closer to 70%, the market will see it as being overbought, and the sentiment might change; as a result, the pair could find a temporary pullback in the short term, then XNG might gather enough strength to resume an uptrend.
The Bollinger bands are shrinking but moving upwards, suggesting that the price is likely to continue rising in the short term; the pair could find resistance at $9.085, the previous high from June 27th; if that level is broken, we would expect the price to continue climbing and potentially reach the $9.52 levels.
Our parabolic SAR indicator suggests that the price will likely continue rising; fundamental factors will hold a heavy weight in determining where the price moves next.
