EIA Natural Gas Storage Report 11-10-16

EIA Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report 10-20-16

Leading up to todays report, Natural gas halted its downward slide Wednesday as market participants awaited new data on supplies and more clarity on winter weather forecasts.


Natural gas prices reversed losses early in the day to settle up 5.7 cents, or 2.16%, at $2.69 a million British thermal units on the New York Mercantile Exchange.


Natural gas has been battered for weeks, as persistently warm weather has stoked fears that a warm winter will limit heating demand even as stockpiles are elevated. Prices have plunged more than 20% since a 52-week high in mid-October, and money managers have been liquidating their bullish positions on natural gas.

An update to weather forecasts Wednesday afternoon also showed some colder weather could appear in a few weeks.
