0 Natural Gas Price Fundamental Daily Forecast – With Oil Prices Down, Production Cuts May Be Coming Natural gas prices are surging on Friday shortly after the regular session opening and Thursday’s dramatic technical reversal as traders shrugged off yesterday’s bearish government storage report, choosing instead to focus on the rapid pace of falling production. Falling spot prices and the emergence of milder weather patterns may be limiting gains. At 13:01 GMT, June natural gas futures are trading $1.895, up $0.050 or +2.71%. According to Natural Gas Intelligence (NGI), with the relaxing of coronavirus-related shutdowns and stay-at-home orders not yet know, the supply side of the equation is starting to come into focus. Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. (TPH) analysts said the last two days of flow data showed total U.S. gas production down around 1.5 Bcf/d, “which could indicate the first signs of a break in U.S. gas supply.” U.S. Energy Information Administration Weekly Storage Report The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported Thursday that domestic supplies of natural gas rose by 73 billion cubic feet for the week-ended April 10. That was generally in line with average expectations for an increase of 71 billion cubic feet, according to a survey of analysts. Total stocks now stand at 2.097 trillion cubic feet, up 876 billion cubic feet from a year ago, and 370 billion cubic feet above the five-year average, the government said. NGI said a Bloomberg survey showed projections ranging from 42 Bcf to 78 Bcf, with a median build of 67 Bcf. A Dow Jones poll showed estimates as low as 39 Bcf and produced an average 58 Bcf injection. NGI’s model pegged the build at 57 Bcf. Last year, the EIA recorded a 73 Bcf build for the similar week, and the five-year average is a build of 27 Bcf. Short-Term Weather Outlook According to NatGasWeather for April 17 – April 23, “Cool shots will continue across the central and northern US into early next week with chilly lows of 20s and 30s. Texas and the South will warm back into the 70s and 80s into the foreseeable future, locally a touch hot into the 90s. The West will be mostly comfortable with highs of 50s to 80s for light demand. Warmer than normal conditions will build across all but the northeastern US mid-next week with national demand easing to lighter levels.” Short-Term Outlook Oil prices are down again with nearby futures under $18. This suggests further loss in US oil rigs for this afternoons Baker-Hughes rigs report. It will be watched very closely as it already has dropped a huge amount of oil rigs the past 3-4 weeks, declining more than 30%. This means less associated gas production. However, traders are asking themselves, when is this going to happen? It still hasn’t shown up in the data, given the two straight solidly bearish EIA storage reports. Today’s bullish price action suggests traders are already starting to price in the production cuts.

Isolation is never easy — but in some places it’s easier than others. Only eight U.S. cities have median lot sizes with over 10,000 square feet, according to a new study by listing site Point2 Homes, a subsidiary of Yardi Systems, a Santa Barbara-based investment and property management software. “The most interesting thing is that during this pandemic, smaller cities are more livable than the big cities. This is only happening right now during the pandemic, when everybody has to stay indoors — or in their backyard if they’re lucky,” said Monica Alistar, a spokesperson for Point2 Homes. The study used median square footage from residential property data on the Point2Homes.com and PropertyShark.com platforms. Best and worse cities during isolation by lot size. By Point2 Homes. View photos Best and worse cities during isolation by lot size. By Point2 Homes. More Raleigh, N.C. has the largest median lot size of U.S. cities at 15,682 square feet, according to the study. Virginia Beach, Atlanta, Kansas City, Wichita, Tulsa and Jacksonville all claimed lots over 10,000 square feet. In general, populations in these cities were significantly lower than populations in small-lot cities, but some big cities like Atlanta (12,700 square feet) and Austin (median 9,975 square feet) also ranked No. 3 and No. 9, respectively, for largest lot sizes. Americans without a yard or a terrace for fresh air still might be better off if they have more space to move around inside, said Alistar, so the study also calculated indoor square footage. “We wanted to look at both lot size and living space inside because that is the next best thing. Of course, it would be great to have a backyard or a terrace — that would be amazing. But these cities do not have that,” said the study’s author, Andra Hopulele, a senior real estate writer at Point2 Homes. Best and worse cities during isolation by living area. By Point2 Homes. View photos Best and worse cities during isolation by living area. By Point2 Homes. More Colorado Springs had the biggest median interior living area, at 2,930 square feet — compared to the smallest living space in Boston, with a median 1,127 square feet indoors. “If you look at the median living area, you see that the median in Colorado Springs is double that in Boston — more than double. So it's really disproportionate. There are big differences between the first on the list and the last one. I was surprised by that honestly,” said Alistar. On the East Coast, Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C. had the largest living areas, with 2,451 and 2,128 square feet, respectively. Indianapolis had the most indoor space in the Midwest, with 2,704 square feet. Cramped urban spaces New Yorkers are most likely to be cooped up during the pandemic — Brooklyn had the smallest median lot size, at 2,250 square feet. In fact, the study included four New York City boroughs on the list, including Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island. Manhattan was not included in the study because lot sizes were not available. Other Northeastern cities with the smallest lots included Philadelphia and Washington D.C. Chicago was the smallest in the Midwest at 3,781 square feet, while San Francisco clocked in as the smallest lots in the West Coast, with 2,840 square feet per lot, and New Orleans had the smallest lots in the South, at just over 5,000 square feet per lot. “The properties that have the smallest outdoor spaces are located in sought-after urban hubs, but obviously, people there do not get to enjoy gardens or backyards, as people in smaller cities do,” said Alistar. “The big city is good for business and lifestyle, but during these times of lockdown, people in these cities might be less happy.” Indoors, small living areas are clustered in the Northeast: Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Staten Island. Detroit and Columbus, Ohio had the smallest spaces in the Midwest. Miami had the smallest living area in the South, with a median 1,487-square-foot living space, and on the West Coast, San Francisco and San Diego both had median indoor space under 1,500 square feet. “Right now, it would obviously be better to have a four bedroom, rather than, say, a studio. Especially if you have a family, the size of your home may force you to work in the same room with the children, who might be homeschooling. It isn’t ideal,” said Hopulele.
