Natural gas is losing some ground as traders react to the EIA report, which showed that working gas in storage declined by 117 Bcf from the previous week.

From the technical point of view, RSI is close to the oversold territory, so the risks of a rebound are increasing.

WTI oil remains under pressure after the recent sell-off. China’s crude oil imports declined in November, which is bearish for oil markets.

The key question is whether bulls are ready to bet on a rebound as WTI oil is close to a strong support level at $67.50 – $68.50.
