Natural gas tested new lows today as weather forecasts remained disappointing for the bulls. Traders also had a chance to take a look at the EIA Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report. The report indicated that working gas in storage declined by 82 Bcf from the previous week, compared to analyst consensus of -71 Bcf. The report did not provide material support to natural gas prices as traders remained focused on the weather.
