It also shows the average price of natural gas prompt month futures contract (NYMEX Henry Hub - bright blue curve) as well as the latest forward curve (pale blue curve). The chart also displays our long-term storage forecast (10 weeks / 11 EIA reports - dotted line). Every Friday, the forecast is extended by one week.

Traders' Note

The left axis of the chart is intentionally inverted because it is assumed (but not asserted) that negative difference in storage inventory (i.e, "storage deficit") should exert an upward pressure on prices, while positive difference in storage inventory (i.e., "storage surplus") should exert a downward pressure on prices.
