Natural Gas Inventories Reveal a Less-than-Expected Build in Supply as Natural Gas Prices Rocket


Natural Gas inventories showed a big build of 78 bcf for the past week, but the market expected an even larger build of 88 bcf!

In reaction to the "miss," nearby Natural Gas prices rocketed through big stops on short positions at 2.95 and at 3.00, propelling Natural Gas to an intraday high of 3.036 so far today.

More significantly, however, is the chart set-up, which now is developing into a June Double-Bottom pattern at coordinates of 2.935 (June 5) and at 2.916 (June 14), and is propelling price towards a confrontation with key resistance lodged between 3.05 and 3.10.

If hurdled, Natural Gas will trigger upside potential that projects to 3.20, and then to 3.26.

Should hurricane season interject some uncertainty about production, and/or access to supply, then Natural Gas could climb in parabolic form.
