Natural Gas closed higher due to short covering on Monday while extending the late-summer trading range. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening when Tuesday's night session begins trading. Stochastics and the RSI are neutral to bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it renews this summer's decline, monthly support crossing is the next downside target. If it renews the rally off August's low, the reaction high crossing is the next upside target.
