Natural gas prices whipsawed on Monday, closing nearly unchanged after making a lower low and a lower high. Target support is seen near the July lows at 2.65. Resistance is seen near the 10-day moving average at 3.13. The 10-day moving average has crossed below the 50-day moving average which means that a short-term downtrend is now in place. Prices are nearly oversold as the RSI (relative strength index) is printing a reading of 32, just above the oversold trigger level of 30 which could foreshadow a correction. Momentum is negative as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) histogram prints in the red with a downward sloping trajectory which points to lower prices.
