Forecast for 4th March 2013

Natural Gas April contract

Natural Gas

Natural Gas held support at 3.390 but will need to beat 3.460 resistance for another test of 3.52/3.554 highs. It is unlikely we can push through here today as this is 10 month trend line resistance & we are getting quite over bought, but a break would target 3.592/613.

Below 3.453 support we should retest 3.399/386 support. A break lower today would not be a surprise & should target 3.339/315 where we could expect to see a bounce. If however we move below 3.320 we should fill the gap at 3.294/289 & find excellent support here.

Gasoil ICE March contract

Gasoil ICE

Gasoil tested strong support at 920.25/918.75. Here we predicted a low for the week & the exact low was 917.25. Being so over sold a bounce is very likely from this point & above 926 we can target Friday’s high of 930 then Fibonacci resistance at 935.78. Watch for a high here at this stage. However a break higher could find tough resistance at 944.27/947.24.

Support at 918.75/917.25 is expected to hold again today if tested. However if we break lower look for 911.75.

RBOB Gasoline April contract


March RBOB tested the December high at 283.92/83 where we saw a possible bounce from here. We shot higher from 282.70. April needs to hold above 312 now for a test of resistance at 315/316. If we push higher look for 319, possibly 322 for a selling opportunity.

Below 312 risks a retest of 307/306 lows & good support here could hold again today. However a break lower targets 302.88.

XAU Spot Gold

XAU Spot Gold

Spot Gold broke 1584 & fell all the way back to 1565. Support today seen at 1569/67 and this could hold any weakness. However a break below 1565 could signal a retest of February lows at 1555.

It does look like we can push back above 1579/80 resistance for 1587/88. This could hold the top of the market today but if we start to push higher look for 1595.
