The past 15 years or so have seen Natural Gas mired in a down-trend. But Natural Gas prices are perking up and this has given life to the United States Natural Gas Fund ETF $UNG.
Today’s chart looks at a “weekly” chart of this Natural Gas ETF $UNG, from Marketsmith.com, over the past 5 years.
Zooming in, we can see that $UNG has been caught up in another trading downtrend over the past 22 months marked by each (1). During this time, the price of $UNG has fallen nearly 65%.
But prices have been rallying over the past several weeks and have $UNG testing the top of this falling price channel at (3). This breakout test also comes at a time when Natural gas tends to perform well.
