UNG Hitting New Lows

I eagerly started my strategy series and invested opposite the same day. So much on strategy and trading having common points. The United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) has hit new lows yesterday and I couldn’t resist taking a position. I bought ATM April Calls. Had to close FXY position (with a small profit) to reduce portfolio risk.

I stick with my fundamental view that the demand is not recovering and supply falling fast enough to remove the glut, but from a short-term trading point I see the fund being oversold. The EIA natural gas report could be the catalyst today as colder weather could lead to some sort of a draw from the stocks. If it doesn’t rebound in next few days, will close the position.
