12 august chart overview for Oil and Natural Gas
Oil chart analysis
Yesterday was another positive day for oil price as we saw a jump to $95.00. During today’s Asian trading session, the price of oil retreated to the $94.00 level, where the price found support and started a new bullish trend. We found ourselves again in the zone around the $95.00 level. To continue the bullish option, we need a positive consolidation and a continuation towards the $96.00 level. Above, we could expect the next resistance and the next consolidation zone. We need a negative consolidation and price pullback below the $94.00 level for a bearish option. After that, the bearish pressure would probably increase, which would affect the price, and we would see a further pullback. Potential lower targets are $93.00 and $92.00 levels. Additional support in the zone around $92.00 lay in the MA50 and MA200 moving averages.
Natural gas chart analysis
Late last night, the price of natural gas jumped to the $9.00 level. This was followed by a quick pullback to $8.80, where the price was consolidated during the Asian trading session. Today we have less bearish pressure on the price and have seen a drop to $8.67, where we have some support for now. If the gas price continues to be under pressure, we will probably go down to the $8.60 level. Potential lower targets are the $8.40 level, where we could expect a little more support. Then $8.20 and $8.00 if we see a break below the $8.40 level. For a bullish option, we need a stable price above the $8.80 level. After that, we have a chance to threaten the $9.00 level again. Potential higher targets are $9.20. $9.40 and $9.60 levels.
