Gas prices displayed gains yesterday despite a bearish opening to the session. Support was provided by a stronger overall energy complex, with oil, carbon, coal and power all moving higher. Upward movement at the front of the curve was slightly restricted by a milder weather outlook which should result in weaker demand.
Near-curve gas prices displayed gains on Tuesday morning on the back of an undersupplied system. However, prices eased down as the session progressed as the supply picture remained comfortable with a number of LNG deliveries expected before the end of the month.
Gas prices showed little change from open to close, initially moving lower before rallying later in the session. The system was undersupplied which helped towards gains on the near-curve as a drop in renewable power lifted gas demand. A rise in oil also provided support to contracts further along the curve.
Gas prices continued to move down on Friday, adding to the bearish trend displayed throughout the week. Coal, power, carbon and oil markets all displayed losses, while the system was oversupplied throughout the session.
