I bid you good day! And we reach the end of a perturbing week, in markets and otherwise. Crude prices have plundered lower under the weight of renewed economic concerns kick-started on Sunday night by China. Meanwhile, natural gas has thundered higher to reach a new 21-month high on a smaller-than-expected injection to storage and the prospect of lingering heating demand. As for now, kick back and relax, and dine on these snacks: » read more

Good day! This week has seen natural gas push on to new highs for the year as a surprisingly large withdrawal from the weekly storage report and end-of-season heating demand have egged it on. Meanwhile, oil has been a hambone, testing new lows for the year as it ignores the euphoria in broader markets (smart move) to focus on the harsh realities of tepid demand and sufficient supply.

As for our dearly beloved commodities this week, oil has remained under the influence of the fiscal cliff – the skullduggery of it all leaves crude ultimately range-bound and run ragged. As for natural gas, it has shimmied higher on cooler weather outlooks, back to swing around the monkey bar of mid three-dollardom. But enough from me, it’s time for treats: » read more

Phew! Made it to another Friday! Natural gas is stuck in Groundhog week, as it again makes a new decade-low on the same themes of last week (…and the week before, and the week before…) with strong supply and downbeat demand. Crude oil has drifted lower for most of the week, but is bouncing with some bargain-hunting after testing two-month lows. Oh happy, oh joy, the snacks are ahoy: » read more
