NATURAL GAS closed lower on Tuesday as it extended the decline off last Friday's high. The lowrange close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI have turned bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible nearterm. Multiple closes below the 20day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a shortterm top has been posted. If it renews the rally off June's low, February's high crossing is the next upside target.
