Natural Gas closed slightly higher due to short covering on Wednesday as it consolidated some of the decline off last week's high. The mid-range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are turning bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it renews the decline off July's high, the October 2010 low on the monthly continuation chart crossing is the next downside target.
