November natural gas made a successful test of contract lows during yesterday's action and was followed by a gap higher open last night. Some traders viewed the early morning action as a sign that downside momentum might be waning, especially following the more than 8.5% downdraft from last week's high to yesterday's low. Meanwhile, the fundamental backdrop for natural gas continues to lack demand factors worthy of engineering a new uptrend. The Natural Gas Supply Association came out with reports during yesterday's session that projected natural gas prices to be relatively flat this winter.
