Looking Ahead to Today by Reflecting Back at Wednesday’s Price Action


Higher closes yesterday for natural gas while lower for crude and heating oil along with the RBOB. The crude, heat and RBOB made their lowest close since June 9-11 all getting close to possible sell signals while gas did give me a SELL SIGNAL on Tuesday. Gas made its lowest low since June 3rd before rallying to close higher in reversal type action and also has very good support from 420 to 460 basis the August contract making it a bad idea to sell in its present price area. BUY SIGNALS FOR CRUDE AND HEATING OIL ALONG WITH THE RBOB. SELL SIGNAL FOR NATURAL GAS. CALL FOR DETAILS!
