Natural gas futures had another listless week after EIA reported a natural gas storage build of +78 Bcf this week. Excitment comes from pipeline repairs and heat and storms, but only in the vernacular it seems.

From here weather models are key on the longevity of the heating season. The focus will continue on Sabine Pass and Mexico and perhaps LNG exports given Trade Wars are the overhang du jour. Technically the weekly support $2.522 is the .618 retracement of the move up from $1.611 to $3.994. For Fiboancci fans $3.50 is the .618 retracement of the move down from $3.994 to $2.522. KnovaWave notes the confluence of technicals, fundamental and herd or wave psychology. In natural gas the Marcellus break-even is $2.50 and $3.50 is the Haynesville break-even. Both those levels were also impulse exhaustions.

It's never about a single Inventory report.  It's the accumulation of Inventory reports that expose reality.... @BrynneKKelly
