Analysis and Recommendations:

Natural Gas is trading at 2.9333 up a bit in today’s session, after falling from a high close to 3.20 just a few days ago. Investors sold off for profits and also a drop in the temperature reduced the need for extra electrical output. The demand for natural gas, for the excess production declined by 3%.

Higher than expected inventories continue to weight on prices.
