Natural Gas, WTI Oil, Brent Oil – Oil Dives 5% As Traders Worry That OPEC+ Would Not Cut Production
- Natural gas is losing ground as traders focus on disappointing weather forecasts.
- WTI oil and Brent oil are under strong pressure as traders bet that OPEC+ will not provide additional support to oil markets at the upcoming meeting.
- Recession worries and U.S. debt ceiling deal vote serve as additional bearish catalysts for oil prices.
The nearest support level for natural gas is located at $2.20. In case natural gas declines below this level, it will move towards the support at $2.00. A successful test of the support at $2.00 will push natural gas towards the $1.80 level.
