Gasoline has performed a new highs with no obvious resistance levels. However, 1.382 Fibonacci projection of the March correction indicates first target at around $427.40. However, further upside to the 1.618 projection at around 451 is not unlikely. To reverse the uptrend Gasoline needs to close below $362.

Dutch TTF Gas seems to bounce off from the support around €84. However, upside picture is not convincing, Dutch Gas needs to at least break above the falling trend line.

When the price moves have been that extreme as we have seen in Dutch Gas it is sometime useful to look at intra day time periods for levels and trends.

On the 1 hour chart an uptrend seems to be building with resistance at the 200 SMA and at around €97.94. A break above 200 SMA could be first indication of further upside which will be confirmed if we see a break above resistance at 97.94.

Henry Hub Gas seems to have peaked. Twice it has spiked higher but failed to close above $9.Divergence on RSI indicates a reversal i.e. a down wards correction. A daily close below 7.85 will confirm trend reversal
However, if Henry Hub Gas manages to close above $9 and RSI closes above its falling trendline new highs should be expected.
