February natural gas posted a banner performance Wednesday, broking out to their highest price levels since January 6th. Some traders indicated that the higher prices were attributed to colder short term weather forecasts and expectations for this morning's EIA storage report to show a significant draw. Market expectations for today's US natural gas storage report suggest another weekly decline in the range of 230 bcf to 240 bcf. These expectations fall short of last year's decline but are much higher larger than the five year average of 133 bcf.
