Island Bottom, Momentum And Buffett

Rare to see an island bottom.

However, the one in UNG or the ETF for natural gas had a classic one.

After making new all-time lows, an island confirmed suggests a reversal of the downtrend.

But that’s not all, Warren Buffett bought Dominion Energy, a company that heats and cools 7.5 million customers (small) in 18 states with electricity and natural gas.

For Buffett, this is a value play.

For me, after seeing the UNG chart, I like to think of it as also a commodities play.

Why else is this island bottom so compelling?

The other two indicators on the chart are MarketGauge Proprietary indicators.

The middle one is a price-performance comparison to a key benchmark.

UNG has begun to outperform that benchmark.

The bottom chart shows our Real Motion indicator.

And that’s where things get really interesting.

The momentum shows price well above the 50-DMA while the actual price trades just below the 50-DMA.

This type of divergence is compelling and worth watching to see if price can catch up to momentum.

Island bottom, momentum, and Buffett-now there is an oh my!
