Natural Gas closed lower on Thursday as it consolidated some of Wednesday's rally. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Friday's night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends this week's rally, the reaction high crossing is the next upside target. Closes below the 10-day moving average crossing would temper the friendly outlook.
