Natural Gas Weekly Chart Review

For those wave analysts that think that diagonal waves don’t exist, then by all means try finding some clean impulse waves in this Natural Gas chart (NG).  You might see some very small degree impulse waves,  but overall most all waves overlap each other at critical locations.   I have created an expanded pattern followed by 5 waves that will not work as impulse waves, so we have diagonals waves as our real choice. 

I think Natural Gas is going down in another correction after which NG could soar to another new high. The best scenario would be that a diagonal decline has completed and we end up getting a 5 wave run in Minor degree. This single correction could still keep falling to the 61% retracement, after which it can crank up again. 

At one time I read that they want to rename NG as Methane! Once they do that then they can call NG a greenhouse gas, and tax it out of existence. They don’t like it when they call a fossil fuel “Natural”!  Global cooling would change all that as demand would pick up everywhere. 

Only time will help give us more clues, but if the bullish scenario dominates, then NG  must not crash to new record lows. 

Natural Gas Intraday Bullish Review



Natural Gas has exploded from another major bottom, but it started with no clean impulse waves, except for very small degree levels. This gives me a clue that Natural Gas can be in a big fake bull market, or possibly a “Primary degree “B” wave bull market. 

The recent decline sure looks like another zigzag in the completing stages, and if this is true, then NG should blast much higher again.  Besides closing all the open gaps on the decline, NG also has a big open gap well above present prices.  This gap should get close.   I don’t have the time to keep very detailed intraday wave counts on NG, so every wave position will be a best case scenario.   It takes a very long time to build a decent wave count on anything and Natural Gas has mostly diagonal wave structures in it, going back to the 1980’s.  

Quick Natural Gas Intraday Bull Market Review



Natural gas is another good example how climate change can affect commodity prices.  It affects the people who are trading in the commodity.  This is not rocket science when record breaking cold spells  has gripped most of North America at this time. The coldest month of the year usally happens in January so I could see NG still performing strong until then, or until the next warm spell. 

America will have big problems in meeting electricity production in the next few decades as Obama has killed off all the coal fired plants at the same time that present nuclear plants become obsolete or worn out.  In a desperate move to crush Trump before he gets going, Obama has stopped offshore drilling in Alaska and the Atlantic. 

All this when we have the potential to drift back into global cooling for the next two solar cycles. I’m a great believer  that Thorium can make up the slack in record time as Thorium is plentiful and is a waste byproduct of rare earth mining. 

Natural Gas Weekly Chart Bull Market Review




I would like to cover many more commodities to my my wave counts, but that is impossible as my time were stretched already. I probably post more during the day than any other single wave analysts does, and the more I do, the more the quality can suffer.  When I did look at this NG chart I saw what looks like a great starting impulse wave, that I would not want to call a top unless I saw a pretty good looking spike being added on, in the daily or this weekly chart. Even then, with the start of an impulse NG could still add on another few legs to this move.

About 8 years from the “B” wave top gives it a nice Fibonacci ring to it, but if we are heading up to another “D” wave in primary degree, then we should see a wild “B” wave correction in Intermediate degree. If the 2016 bottom ended on a “C” wave, then there is a very good chance the entire decline will get retraced as that is what happens after “ABC” crashes. Of course in a triangle this may not happen every time, but they eventually get retraced by the following bull market. 

At a minimum NG should cross the Intermediate degree (B) wave top. 

Natural Gas 2005-2016 Review: Is The Bear Market Over?




It has been some time since I last looked at the Natural Gas chart. On March 7th, 2016 it made what I call a major bottom. NG now matches the 1999 bottom prices, so this qualifies as a major bottom in my books.  If you want a horror (good Practice)  in counting Elliott Waves then NG is the one to pick on, as I would have to call it as a diagonal wave counting heaven.

Reviewing this with diagonal eye glasses on we can try many different wave counts were overlapping waves is the norm. Don’t even try to look at NG with impulse waves etched into our brains, we would be wrong every time.

As you may have guessed I can not stress it enough times, but very many of the markets are all traveling in diagoanls waves.  NG has a very good chance of ending in a  diagonal wave 4 in Primary degree.

If my above flat is true, then we should see NG travel to all time new record highs, even if it does so by the slimmest of margins. After which another bear market would develop. I’m still well below Cycle degree with this wave count, which would make Cycle degree wave 3 still ahead of us time wise.

My “B” wave top in Intermediate degree, should get retraced and any decline trend line would also get stabbed once NG picks up steam. From a glut to a shortage in a very short time, as storage levels are getting low. With many  rigs shut down, gas production is also imploding.    California may suffer rolling blackouts, so until all the rigs are up and running again, it may take some time to clear up. 

The fundamentals will take care of themselves as they are always lagging the price moves.  



Natural Gas 2008-2016 Review


I mentioned in the past that NG still had to fall below that $2 range. It most certainly did this, but now what? NG does not run on your average looking impulse as its biggest bear market looks more like a diagonal decline, but with an expanded pattern in the 4th wave position. Will this low of $1.85 hold? Futures Natural Gas charts are horrible to display, as they will not work on the cash basis as there is not enough volume to display. Needless to say I have never been able to keep a detailed wave count on NG itself, and I don’t review it very often. It’s not at the top of my list.

Eventually we should see an NG breakout over those $6.0 peaks. With drilling rig counts crashed, I can see a squeeze in energy prices, as electricity production will be more in demand. How else do you think we can keep all those Tesla electric cars on the road?  Solar Power is not going to do it!  They may even have to bring coal back online, even though Obama tried to kill coal off.
