Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Market News and Commentary

Feb Nymex natural gas (NGG19) on Wednesday closed down by -0.060 (-1.97%). Nat-gas prices on Wednesday erased an early rally as they tumbled to a 2-week low and closed lower after Radiant Solutions predicted that much of the U.S. will be warmer than previously forecast and that "significant warmer changes" are in store across much of the U.S. from Feb 2-6. Also on the bearish side, expectations are for Thursday's weekly EIA U.S. nat-gas inventories to fall -155 bcf, a smaller decline than the 5-year average for this time of year of -185 bcf. Nat-gas prices moved higher early Wednesday on a weaker dollar and reduced U.S. nat-gas output after Wednesday's data showed that lower-48 state nat-gas production fell to 83.577 bcf, just above Monday's 2-1/4 month low of 83.345 bcf. U.S. nat-gas inventories remain tight at -2.0% y/y at 2.533 bcf as of Jan 11, which is -11.4% below the 5-year average.
