Natural gas pulls back as traders take some profits off the table after the strong move.

From the technical point of view, natural gas did not manage to settle above the resistance at $3.02 – $3.09.


WTI Oil 120624 Daily Chart

WTI oil gains ground despite the bearish EIA report, which showed that crude inventories increased by 3.7 million barrels from the previous week. Domestic oil production grew from 13.1 million bpd to 13.2 million bpd, which is also bearish for the market. However, traders focused on falling Treasury yields and U.S. dollar’s pullback.

In case WTI oil moves above the resistance at $79.00 – $80.00, it will head towards the next resistance level at $83.50 – $84.50.
