NATURAL GAS closed lower on Friday and the lowrange close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning bearish signalling that a shortterm top might be in or is near. Closes below the 20day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a shortterm top has been posted. If it resumes the rally off June's low, the 38% retracement level of the 20112012decline crossing is the next upside target.
