Technical Update - Dutch Gas seems to resume uptrend. Henry Hub treading water above key support
Kim Cramer Larsson
Technical Analyst, Saxo Bank
Dutch Gas opened yesterday Tuesday below 0.618 retracement and key support at €187.50. But buyers took immediate control and kept it through-out the session and closed the market well above the key support forming a Bullish Engulfing candle which indicates a bottom and reversal. RSI is still above 40 and has not been below since June i.e., positive sentiment and indicating reversal.
Dutch gas is set for a strong rebound. A move to 0.382 retracement of the sell-off at 235.50 and resistance at 247 with-in few days is likely.
If breaking above that resistance area next key resistance area is the 0.618 retracement at around 276 and 290.
If closing above 290 a new all-time high is likely.
As mentioned RSI is still positive and there is no divergence supporting the higher highs scenario and to reverse that Dutch Gas must close below 169.75.
Henry Hub Gas closed above key support at $7.55. If the price moves back above the 55 SMA more upside should be expected and the Shoulder-Head-Shoulder like formation is likely to be demolished.
The S-H-S scenario is explained in previous Gas update 19th September: https://www.home.saxo/content/articles/commodities/ta-energy-19092022
If closing below 7.55 the S-H-S pattern is in play with a minimum potential down to around 6.45.
RSI is not really providing guidance at the moment but if it closes above its falling trend line the uptrend scenario is likely to unfold.
