The bottom-building processing in natural gas and its related ETFs continues. The ProShares Ultra DJ UBS Natural Gas ETF (BOIL) pattern begins to round to the upside towards a confrontation with its Jan-Feb resistance line, now at 13.95, which if hurdled and sustained should trigger upside follow-through directly to test the prior rally peak at 14.55 (hit on Feb 7).
Right now, my near- and intermediate-term work argue strongly for upside continuation and acceleration. That said, the patterns and anecdotal evidence are potentially so bullish that I am expecting the next up-leg to be accompanied by a fundamental catalyst that is so compelling from the long side — and such a game-changer for the shorts — that the latter group has to cover and perhaps reverse its polarity.
