Short-term traders may take a short-sell position in natural gas around Rs.178-180 with stop loss of Rs.182 and wait for the target near Rs.168 and Rs.165.

However, coming sessions may see bearish trend gripping the futures as US weather data is not favourable.

On Thursday, the futures opened positive on the MCX subsequent to prices dipping sharply on Wednesday after it hit the lowest level in 15 weeks as forecasts of mild weather dampened sentiments.

If prices move up further, then it is a good opportunity for the natural gas traders to take a short sell position at higher levels. On India's MCX, natural gas for delivery on January 28 was seen trading at Rs.172.70/mmBtu a gain of 1.17% as of 04.47 PM IST.

Natural gas for delivery on February 13 on the NYMEX was seen trading at $3.148 a gain of 0.035 or 1.14% as of 04.57 PM IST. (Ankush Kumar Jain is Research Analyst, Commodity Online)
