The mid range close sets the stage for a steady opening when Thursday's night session begins. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain neutral to bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near term. If July extends this month's decline, the 75% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 85.69 is the next downside target.

Second resistance is the 20 day moving average crossing at 97.93. First support is today's low crossing at 89.28. Second support is the 75% retracement level of the 2011-2012 rally crossing at 85.69.

Natural gas closed higher on Wednesday and the high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term.

Second resistance is February's high crossing at 3.040. First support is the 10 day moving average crossing at 2.593. Second support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 2.448.
