- Natural Gas price drops for the first time in three days, retreats from one-week high.
- 21-DMA prods XNG/USD bulls but steady RSI (14), clear break of 10-DMA favor energy buyers.
- Multi-day-old resistance lines stand tall to challenge Natural Gas buyers; five-week-old descending trend line is the key support.
Natural Gas (XNG/USD) price struggles to extend the latest rebound, printing mild losses near $2.34 amid early Tuesday.
With this, the 21-DMA seems to cap the energy instrument’s immediate upside amid a steady RSI (14). However, a daily closing beyond the 10-DMA, the first in seven days, keeps the XNG/USD buyers hopeful.
Hence, the Natural Gas buyers may wait for a daily close beyond the 21-DMA hurdle of around $2.35 to initiate fresh long positions.
Even so, downward-sloping resistance lines from early March, around $2.42 and $2.54, can challenge the quote’s further upside.
Also acting as an upside filter for the XNG/USD price is the previous monthly high of around $2.58.
Should the Natural Gas price remains firmer past $2.58, the odds of witnessing a run-up toward the mid-March swing high of around $2.75 can’t be ruled out.
On the flip side, a daily closing below the 10-DMA support of $2.32 will prod the latest bullish bias about the XNG/USD price.
Following that, the $2.30 round figure and the latest swing low of around $2.14 can entertain the Natural Gas sellers. However, a five-week-old descending support line close to $2.07 and the $2.00 psychological magnet can challenge the XNG/USD bears afterward.
Overall, the Natural Gas price lures the buyers but the upside remains doubtful below $2.58.
