Natural Gas Seasonal Cycles Show Upside Potential
Contributed Opinion


Chris Vermeulen A traditional seasonal pattern in natural gas has set up, and may result in a tremendous trading opportunity, writes Chris Vermeulen of Technical Traders.

Recently, we have alerted our members to this play, which is already up over 16%. Additionally, our advanced price modeling systems and Adaptive Dynamic Learning Cycles have recently triggered another buy entry trade (see the chart) with oversold pullbacks.

This seasonality table refers to particular time frames when commodities are subjected to and influenced by recurring tendencies that produce patterns each year.


Our research team has been following the energy sector quite intensely, with oil and natural gas making an impressive move. Our belief is that natural gas will continue to climb higher, moving well above the $3.00 level before the end of this month, as well as potentially pushing well above the $3.20 level on continued price advances in energy. With global concern globally driving energy supply fear and pushing energy prices higher. This seasonal pattern indicates the potential for some strong upside price moves. Smart traders are already positioned for this move, yet there is still quite a bit of opportunity for current entry point.


Any upside price move from current levels to above $3.00 would reflect an additional 46% price gain, and any advance above $3.20 would reflect a 11% price advance. Additionally, our predictive price modeling systems and cycle modeling systems are showing this has the potential for quite a bit more, but we can estimate the $3.003.20 level is a sufficient upside target for this initial move.
