Tuesday, 4 Jan 2011 | 5:52 PM ET

The reversal in gold got all the attention on Tuesday, but bearish action in another commodity is also worth watching.

"The most despised commodity of 2010 was nat gas, says Josh Brown of TheReformedBroker.com. It was down 23% on the year in an otherwise great year for commodities."

Take a look at the chart.

But, he adds, the down trend could be about to change. Get all the details. Watch the video now!

The Most Hated Commodity
Natural gas futures have not been able to rise about a trend line but might be poised to do so.
