Natural gas remains under pressure amid a lack of positive catalysts. It remains to be seen whether natural gas will be able to stay above the key support at $1.60 – $1.65.

RSI is in the moderate territory, so there is plenty of room to gain momentum in case the right catalysts emerge.


WTI Oil 160424 Daily Chart

WTI oil is losing some ground as traders wait for the news from the Middle East. According to recent reports, Israel’s war cabinet will meet again to discuss the country’s response on Iran’s attack.

From the technical point of view, WTI oil needs to settle above the resistance at $85.50 – $86.50 to gain additional upside momentum.

Brent Oil
