By Dean Rogers Natural gas fell back into the trading range between $2.23 and $2.39 where it spent the first week of the new year. This comes after the failure to extend to the 0.618 projection of the wave $1.802 – 2.386 – 2.188. There is still an outside chance the move up will extend to $2.56 while $2.188 holds, but overall, the charts do not look good and odds favor a decline to test major support. The move down from $2.495 broke down into five waves that terminated near $2.241. Today’s small move up to $2.323 was the type of three-wave correction that would be expected after a five-wave pattern. This keeps short-term odds in favor of the decline below key support at $2.23. Upon a close below $2.23 look for $2.17, the 0.618 projection of the wave $2.495 – 2.241 – 2.323. This then connects to $2.07 as the 1.00 projection. These are also the 50 and 62 percent retracements of the move up from $1.802 to $2.495, respectively. Today’s Harami line and star setup is positive, but the star’s blow-off high dampens the likelihood of a turn higher tomorrow. A surprise bullish withdrawal reported by the EIA
