NATURAL GAS closed higher on Tuesday as it extended this month's rally. The highrange close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible nearterm. If it extends this month's rally, May's high crossing is the next upside target. Multiple closes below the 20day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a shortterm top has been posted.
