Natural gas gains 2 cents

Posted on: October 20, 2017

After NG prompt futures tested highs of $2.9 they ultimately settled 2 cents higher at $2.87 for the day. The EIA inventory number was +51-Bcf which is comparable to the earlier estimate this week and provided some support to prices, although price gains were tempered by a persistently mild autumn weather forecast. According to Bloomberg, inventories are 1% below the 5-year average. The US Climate Prediction Center's latest estimate is a 67% chance of La Nina, although it is likely a weak one.

For those who are not familiar La Nina would potentially stimulate heating demand by causing colder temperatures during the Winter Season.
