Natural gas is under strong pressure as weather forecasts remain bearish. At this point, bulls cannot find positive catalysts for natural gas.

The nearest support level for natural gas is located in the $1.60 – $1.65 range. RSI is in the moderate territory, so there is plenty of room to gain additional downside momentum.

WTI oil gains ground as traders react to OPEC report, which indicated that the organization continues to expect that oil demand will grow by 2.25 million bpd in 2024 and by 1.85 million bpd in 2025.
