NATURAL GAS closed higher on Wednesday and the highrange close sets the stage for a steady opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning neutral to bullish hinting that a low might be in or is near. Closes above the 20day moving average crossing would temper the nearterm bearish outlook. If it renews the decline off July's high, the 62% retracement level of the AprilJuly rally crossing is the next downside target.
