Natural gas pullback brings potential buying opportunity

Natural gas has seen a rare pullback this week, but the ongoing uptrend and expectations of rising winter demand signal a potential buying opportunity.

Natural gas on fire over the course of 2021

Natural gas has been one of the biggest outperformers in a highly volatile commodity market, with the energy markets really gaining traction into a crucial winter period.

Demand is likely to continue its uptrend going forward as temperatures drop, with the chart below highlighting how we typically see residential consumption surge over the winter period.



Meanwhile, that rise in demand puts pressure on supplies, with any ongoing struggles from a supply perspective likely to dial up in the coming months.


Pullback brings potential buying opportunity

The wider chart highlights just how impressive this bull run has been, with the price of natural gas bringing us into a seven-year high.

While we are obviously heavily stretched, it makes sense to expect this to continue until price tells us otherwise.

The intraday chart highlights how we have seen a sharp decline this week, providing a potential opportunity for bulls. A break below the $47.60 level would bring a more neutral/bearish outlook for the near-term.

However, until that happens this latest 61.8% Fibonacci retracement provides us with a potential buying opportunity within a remarkably reliable uptrend.

    • A late rally in the US has put some fight back into equities, pointing to a positive open for European stocks after an indecisive session yesterday. Jerome Powell reiterated the need for more rate hikes, without walking back any of his comments on disinflation at last week's Fed meeting, leaving the dollar a touch weaker. After the hurly-burly of last week's action-packed sessions, this week is quiet by comparison, with little major data out today aside from weekly crude oil inventories, plus earnings from Disney and Uber.
