Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Rallies on Forecasts for Below-Average Temperatures

Mar Nymex natural gas (NGH19) on Tuesday closed up by +0.037 (+1.41%). Nat-gas prices moved higher Tuesday after the dollar index fell by -0.4% to a 1-1/2 week low and after U.S. nat-gas output declined. Tuesday's data showed that U.S. lower-48 state nat-gas production fell for a third day to a 1-week low of 84.88 bcf. Another positive was the forecast from NOAA for colder-than-normal temperature across the western and midwestern U.S. from Feb 24-28, which should increase heating demand for nat-gas. Also, Radiant Solutions is forecasting below-normal temperatures from California to the Great Lakes from March 1 through March 5 with a forecasted low in Chicago of 11 degrees Fahrenheit (-12 degrees Celsius) on Mar 2, 15 degrees below normal. Nat-gas prices last Friday slipped to a 1-year low on signs of adequate supplies after weekly EIA nat-gas inventories last Thursday fell by only -78 bcf, less than expectations of -82 bcf and much less than the 5-year average of a decline of -160 bcf. Another bearish factor is the March-April nat-gas futures spread that remained negative by -3.4 cents on Tuesday. A negative spread suggests nat-gas supplies will be ample by the end of the heating season. U.S. nat-gas stockpiles as of Feb 8 stood at an 8-month low of 1.882 tcf, down -0.1% y/y and -15.0% below the 5-year average.
