Natural Gas closed higher on Monday as it extends last week's breakout above the upper boundary of the April-May trading range crossing. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Tuesday. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends this week's rally, the 50% retracement level of the November-May decline crossing is the next upside target.
