Natural gas markets initially tried to rally during the day on Friday, but you can see that we have pulled back a bit, reaching below the $1.80 level. There is a significant amount of support to the downside extending all the way to the $1.60 level though, so it is likely that we will continue to see buyers given enough time. With that in mind, I like the idea of looking for some type of bounce that I can take advantage of, but right now I do not see it. That is okay, we are heading into the weekend so it is difficult to imagine a scenario where traders would be willing to get overly bullish anyway. Ultimately, given enough time I do expect that we will see buyers coming back in but that is probably a story for next week.

At this point in time, a little bit of patience is probably needed. Ultimately, I do think that we are trying to form some type of “rounded bottom”, which is always an exceptionally long term and messy affair. Because of this, I think that the market is still very noisy, so therefore small position sizing will be crucial, but I do think that we will have a little bit more clarity somewhere during the week next week. In the short term, simply waiting for the setup is probably the best way going forward. Ultimately, there is not much to do rather than wait.
