January natural gas prices traded higher during the overnight and early morning hours as they tried to recover from yesterday's decline to a new contact low. The 6 to 10 day weather maps show an expanding area of above normal temperatures across the upper US and all along the eastern seaboard, and that is seen as limiting heat-related demand for natural gas. However, the market is expecting another week of poor demand, so any shift to colder temperatures could lend support to prices.
