  • Warmer weather to boost demand for natural gas

US Natural Gas current price $2.822 is above the key support near $2.06. Upside extension prospects towards the $3’s - $3.5s can not be ruled out. Downside risk below $2.06.

Wheat vs USD breaks above 10 month trendline, implying the prevailing downtrend's end. Current price faces resistance near $767, a break above could expose the $810-$812 as extension.

  • Speculation that Russia could withdraw from the Black Sea grain deal that expires on July 17th could be providing underlying very short term (5-13 days) price support for Wheat prices.
