Natural Gas Price Analysis for December 15, 2017

Natural Gas
Natural Gas

Natural gas prices moved lower, sliding in a down trend, after prices broke through support levels. Warmer than normal weather is forecast to cover most of the United States for the next 8-14 days which would reduce heating demand and weigh on natural gas prices. The weather offset the larger than expected draw in inventories.  Prices are targeting support near an upward sloping trend line that comes in near 2.52. Resistance is seen near the 10-day moving average at 2.83.

Gas Drew More than Expected

Working gas in storage was 3,626 Bcf as of Friday, December 8, 2017, according to EIA estimates. This represents a net decrease of 69 Bcf from the previous week.

At 3,626 Bcf, total working gas is within the five-year historical range.
