    Why EIA Data Might Not Satisfy Natural Gas Bulls

    Will Natural Gas Stay above $3? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Inventories spread and natural gas prices In the week ending December 28, the inventories spread was -17.2%. The inventories spread is the difference between natural gas inventories and their five-year average. During this period, the inventories spread contracted by two percentage points compared to the previous week. On January 4, the EIA reported the natural gas inventory data for the week ending on December 28. ## Natural gas inventories The natural gas price is usually inversely related to the inventories spread. However, the relationship seems to be more biased toward a price downside when inventories rise above the five-year average. The market might be confident about having enough future supply instead of being concerned about demand getting out of hand. Since January 4, the natural gas February futures have fallen 2.5%. During the same period, natural-gas-weighted stocks Southwestern Energy (SWN), Gulfport Energy (GPOR), Range Resources (RRC), and Antero Resources (AR) rose 5.4%, 4.9%, 2.9%, and 2.1%, respectively, and underperformed their peers. The remaining natural-gas-weighted stocks ended in the green in this period. Between January 4 and January 8, the SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP) and the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) rose 4.4% and ~2.3%, respectively. These ETFs hold natural gas producer stocks. ## Required fall in inventories On January 10, the EIA is scheduled to release its natural gas inventory report for the week ending on January 4. Any fall by more than ~140 billion cubic feet could cause the inventories to expand more into the negative territory, but Reuters analysts expect a draw of just 95 Bcf, which might not be a positive development for natural gas prices.

    Key Energy Events This Week

    What Happened in the Energy Sector Last Week (Continued from Prior Part) ## Key energy events On January 9 and January 10, respectively, the EIA (U.S. Energy Information Administration) is scheduled to release oil and natural gas inventory data, which could be an important short-term driver for oil and natural gas prices. ## Energy stocks and ETFs Energy stocks respond to long-term changes in oil and natural gas prices and short-term energy price movements. Last week, Murphy Oil (MUR), EQT (EQT), and Apache (APA) rose 10.7%, 1.7%, and 7.5%, respectively. US crude oil February futures rose 5.8%, while natural gas February futures fell 7.8%. The SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP) and the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) invest in energy stocks. Any changes in oil and natural gas prices are expected to influence XOP and XLE, which rose 8.6% and 4.9%, respectively, last week.

    IBB is up Over 5%, But the Market May Retest its Lows

    To receive further updates on this iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (NASDAQ:IBB) trade as well as an alert when it's time to take profits, sign up for a risk-free trial of Maximum Options today. This morning I am recommending a bearish trade on the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (NASDAQ:IBB). Biotechnology stocks are up, but as I mentioned last Friday, the recent rally is a snap-back. We need to see the market successfully retest the lows set on Dec. 24-26. We have a good opportunity for bearish plays while the market is up, and IBB is at a turning point. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips ### New Resistance IBB broke important support at $100 in mid-December and fell all the way down to the $89 level at the lows by the end of the year. However, it has bounced sharply since then and is now above that $100 support level. I don't think it will be able to stay above $100 for long, and I expect it to head lower over the near term. Daily Chart of iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology Index (IBB) -- Chart Source: TradingView If we look at the chart above, we see that IBB tapped its 50-day moving average on Friday. After a sharp decline at the end of 2018, IBB may encounter new resistance as it tries to cross this level. ### Cheap Downside Play Biotechnology stocks are up at the moment. Both IBB and SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (NYSEARCA:XBI) rose over 5% by the close on Friday. For traders like us, that lowers the price of put options. If the market does retest its lows in the short term, IBB will likely fall back below old support. With a put debit spread, we stand to make a big profit with relatively little risk. Using a spread order, buy to open the IBB Jan. 25th $95 put and sell to open the IBB Jan. 25th $92 put for a net debit of about $0.65. A debit spread is simply a way to lower the cost of buying options, as the option that you sell to open (short) helps offset the cost of the option that you buy to open. Therefore, this put debit spread is a way to lower the cost of buying bearish put options. Many brokers will require the use of margin and/or a set amount of reserved capital to execute a debit spread; contact your broker directly for specific requirements.
