In the last 6 weeks natural gas prices are down nearly $1 in the futures which would not be a big deal if we were talking about Crude oil but this actually represents greater than a 20% reduction in prices. To me this is great news because I think the deprecation represents a grand buying opportunity feeling that prices will snap back in the coming weeks.
I’ve started to scale into bullish option trades with some of my clients advising vertical call spreads in April. We are selling (1) closer to the money call and buying multiple out of the money calls. If we get a 25-40 cent pop in the coming weeks as I anticipate this trade should work out well. While it is never cold in Florida where I reside if we get a colder than anticipated weather in the Northeast or Midwest that should be enough to get short covering and a trade back to above the 38.2% Fibonacci level and potentially with buying interest lift prices back near the 50 and 100 day MAs just above $3.60 on the chart above.
