I use the latest numerical weather model guidance and a wide array of fundamental and technical data sets to predict trends in the natural gas market.  At Bespoke Weather Services I compile the latest data into easy-to-read research reports issued ... more


April Gas Trends Lower On Milder End Of March And Loosening Supply/Demand Balances
The April natural gas contract settled down over 2% today as weather forecasts trended unimpressive through the day with balances doing little to support prices.
Depleting Salt Storage And Firm Cash Keep April Gas Bid
The April natural gas contract rallied a bit over a percent today despite an EIA number that was not quite as bullish as the market consensus.
Shoulder Season Doldrums Keep April Gas Flat
The shoulder season doldrums appear to have arrived for natural gas traders, with the April gas contract losing just a tick on the day as weather models warmed but low storage fears keep the summer curve bid.
Low Storage Concerns Push Gas Prices Higher
April natural gas prices ended the day up almost 1% after bouncing around in the early part of the session. Concerns over low storage levels combined with a colder than normal weather forecast were the culprit for the move up.
Weaker Cash And Briefly Warmer Models Let April Gas Retrace
The April natural contract settled down around a percent and a half as overnight weather models moderated slightly and Henry Hub day-ahead cash prices plunged below $3.
Storage Levels Creeping Lower Keeps Gas Firm
Attention today turned to low storage levels, as a growing storage deficit to last year kept a bid in April natural gas prices, allowing the contract to settle up nearly 3 cents on the day.

Natural Gas Approaching Key Short-Term Support Level

Thank you! The case with #LNG is interesting as in the short-term it is not having too significant a demand impact (EIA estimates.5-.7 bcf/d), but longer-term could with further development and investment. Most analysis I conduct is focused on the near-term in the next few weeks/months of price action, but in what I have done as well it has become clear how comparatively cheap our gas is in comparison to other parts of the world.

Natural Gas Declines: Some Seasonality At Play
2 years ago

Thank you for your comment and kind words, Chetan! I began by studying meteorology and the impacts it has within the financial markets, and proceeded to home in on the natural gas market, a market known for swinging wildly due to changes in weather forecasts resulting in different energy demand expectations. To create analysis that was more useful to traders, I decided to pare weather analysis alongside other fundamental/technical analysis into a subscription product, so traders could subscribe and more easily determine when the weather or other fundamentals/technicals were driving price action. Since then, I've been researching other models/theories on price movement to combine alongside the meteorological analysis I conduct. I definitely enjoy posting to this site and plan to continue as regularly as I can.
