  • What's Affecting Gas Prices the Week of January 29, 2019?

    Our analysis leads us to expect the EIA to report later this week that there was a 222 Bcf withdrawal for the week ended Jan 25 (higher than the current 191 Bcf whisper consensus withdrawal expectation and higher than the five-year average withdrawal of 154 Bcf)

  • What's Affecting Gas Prices the Week of January 16, 2019?

    Our analysis leads us to expect the EIA to report later this week that there was a 76 Bcf withdrawal for the week ended Jan. 11 (much lower than the five-year average withdrawal of 218 Bcf, and comparable with the current 76 Bcf consensus whisper expectation.)

  • What's Affecting Gas Prices the Week of January 8, 2019?

    We anticipate little positive reaction to the overall report this Thursday since the storage level is likely to be vastly below normal. Natural gas prices have come down considerably into the sub-$3 range per MMBtu after having neared $45/MMBtu earlier in the winter. We anticipate therefore neutral sentiment this week from a trading standpoint.
