Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Prices Drop to a 1-1/2 Week Low on Larger-Than-Expected EIA Inventory Gain

Jul Nymex natural gas (NGN20) this morning is down -0.037 (-1.96%).

Jul nat-gas prices this morning extended Wednesday's losses and posted a 1-1/2 week low on a larger-than-expected increase in weekly inventories. The EIA reported today that nat-gas inventories rose +109 bcf, above expectations of +104 bcf and above the 5-year average of +93 bcf.

Forecasts for more seasonable temperatures in the U.S. are also bearish for nat-gas prices as the cooler temperatures should curb demand for electricity/nat-gas to run air conditioning. The Commodity Weather Group said Wednesday that temperatures would be mostly seasonable across the central U.S. over the next five days with less intense warmth in the Northeast during this period.

Jul WTI crude oil (CLN20) this morning is down -0.27 (-0.80%) at $32.54, Jul Brent crude oil (CBN20) is down -0.29 (-0.83%) at $34.45, and Jul RBOB gasoline (RBN20) is down -0.0071 (-0.70%).

The energy complex is moving lower today as weaker-than-expected U.S. economic data sparks energy demand concerns. Crude prices maintained their losses after weekly EIA crude inventories unexpectedly rose to a 3-year high.

Today's U.S. economic data was negative for economic growth prospects and energy demand. Weekly initial unemployment claims fell -323,000 to 2.123 million, showing a weaker labor market than expectations for a decline to 2.100 million. Also, U.S. Q1 GDP was unexpectedly revised down by -0.2 points to -5.0% (q/q annualized), weaker than expectations for no revision from -4.8%, and the steepest pace of contraction in 11 years. In addition, Apr pending home sales plunged -21.8% m/m, weaker than expectations of -17.3% m/m and the biggest decline in nearly ten years.... Read more
