Natural Gas Futures: Solid Long Term Rebound

Market chart showing uptrend

Data released on Monday showed that China's 3Q GDP grew 4.9% on year, below estimate of 5.5%. However, industrial production rose 6.9% in September, the fastest growth since December last year and better than 5.8% expected, suggesting that Chinese economic activity is still on a strong footing. As industrial demand appears to be recovering from the coronavirus pandemic, outlook for natural gas remains positive.

From a technical point of view, NYMEX Natural Gas Futures are extending the rebound as shown on a daily chart. It has now surpassed the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement resistance of the decline started in late 2018, opening a path to the 50.0% and 61.8% retracement levels.
