- Windy City Trade Tip 3/22/2013 Natural Gas
March 22 2013 11:42 AM
May natural gas has run pretty much unabated from lows at 326 in mid February up to 405 yesterday and 403 this morning. We are very overbought with Stochastics readings near 93%. The forecast is moderating throughout the Midwest beginning later next week and we are exiting the primary heating season. I look for a minimum correction to 384 and more likely 372. The margin for a full size contract is $2200 and just $550 for a mini contract. Each cent (399 to 398 ) equals a $100 for the full contract and $25 for the mini. If we sell here at 399 the risk to the stop at 406 is $700 for the full size natural gas and $175 for each mini contract.
- WTI Crude Oil May Contract - Forecast for 03/22 by Daytradeideas.com
March 22 2013 7:55 AM
WTI Crude May is mostly going sideways as we were held by 93.47/54 resistance & tumbled to support at 91.82/76 where we predicted a low for the day. The exact low was 91.84. Resistance today at 93.00 with a push higher to allow another test of 93.47/54 resistance & we could struggle here again. However above here offers a selling opportunity at 93.95/94.05 with a stop needed above 94.45 for 94.89. If we hold below 93.00 look for support at 92.36/23 & then 91.82/76 where we could expect a low for today once again. However with the outlook weakening we could break lower in the days to come for a te4st for good support at 91.40/28. Longs here need a stop below 91.00 for 90.89/83 & possibly 90.52.
- Natural Gas April Contract - Forecast for 03/21 by Daytradeideas.com
March 21 2013 7:59 AM
Natural Gas has struggled at 3.965-3.976 for the past 3 days. We had warned the market should run out of momentum here but we do need a stop loss on shorts above 4.050 for 4.413/414 as the next upside target. Failure to break higher in this severely over bought market should see us drift back to 3.924/917. Bears need the market back below here or we risk another move towards this week’s high. If we do continue lower, look for another test of 3.869/855 support & a good chance of a low for the day again. However a break of 3.834 could keep the pressure on for excellent support and a buying opportunity at 3.778/777.
