Analysis and Recommendations:

Natural Gas is trading at 3.344 down 0.052 in today’s quiet session. In the US markets are open but it is a national holiday with traders enjoying the long weekend and Canadian markets closed along with Japanese the day was very light volume.

California Governor Jerry Brown told state regulators to immediately allow oil refineries to make an early transition to winter-blend gasoline to help bring record prices at the pump under control. However, winter blend ideally never comes to the market before Oct end. Thus, switching of gas may lead to weigh on gas prices during the day.

The number of rigs actively explored for oil and natural gas in the US dropped this week by 11 to 1,837. 1,398 rigs were explored for oil and 437 were searching for gas while two were listed as miscellaneous, as per oil field services company Baker Hughes Inc.

On the other side, concern of mild weather forecast may lead to lower consumption in eastern region and ultimately weigh on gas prices.

The big event today, was the revision of growth forecasts issued by the IMF, which reduced global demand for energy products. Crude oil also tumbled to trade under 89.00 today.
