October natural gas established a new contract low price Sunday evening. Some traders suggested that the early downside pressure might have come from moderating weather temperatures that could limit near term natural gas demand. It is also possible that Baker Hughes rig count data released late Friday, which showed an increase of 20 rigs on the week, might have sparked overproduction concerns. The Commitments of Traders Futures and Options report as of September 13th for natural gas showed non-commercial traders were net short 170,901 contracts, a decrease of 794. Non-commercial and nonreportable traders combined held a net short position of 135,200 contracts, a decrease of 2,209.
