Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Market News and Commentary

Jan Nymex natural gas (NGF19) this morning is down by -0.163 (-3.95%). Nat-gas prices fell to a 2-1/2 week low this morning as a rally in the dollar index to a 1-1/2 year high puts pressure on most commodity prices. Nat-gas prices have been under pressure this week as forecasts for above-normal temperatures in the U.S. prompted fund selling of nat-gas futures. NOAA is forecasting warmer-than-normal temperatures across most of the U.S. from Dec 18-22 with the Midwest seeing extreme seasonal warmth Dec 16-20. Also, negative carry-over from Thursday's EIA data is weighing on nat-gas prices after U.S. nat-gas inventories fell -77 bcf, less than expectations of -80 bcf. U.S. nat-gas inventories remain tight at 2.914 bcf as of Dec 7, -19.9% below the 5-year average and -19.6% y/y and the lowest seasonally since 2002.
Crude and Gasoline Market News and Commentary

Jan WTI crude oil (CLF19) this morning is down by -$0.10 per barrel (-0.19%) and Feb Brent crude (CBG19) is down -$0.12 (-0.20%). Jan RBOB gasoline (RBF19) is down by 1.207 cents per gallon (-0.81%). The energy complex is under some pressure this morning due to strength in the dollar as the dollar index soared to a 1-1/2 year high. Also, economic weakness in China, the world's second-largest crude consumer, has raised energy demand concerns after China Nov industrial production rose a less-than-expected +5.4% y/y, the slowest pace in 10 years. Losses were contained on signs of U.S. economic strength after U.S. Nov retail sales rose +0.2%, slightly stronger than expectations of +0.1%. The market is awaiting today's Baker Hughes rig count report at 1 PM ET. In last week's report, active oil rigs fell by 10 rigs to 877 rigs, which is only 11 rigs below the 3-3/4 year high of 888 rigs posted several weeks ago in the week ended Dec 16.
