Nice chart, esp. the volume-by-price histogram or whatever it's called. Has that feature existed in IB for a long time or is it something new?

As far as i know, unfortunately, it only works for charts < 2days, not monthly or year charts.
at least i can't turn on the volume histogram when i take a wider range.


@SMCJB care to share your thought who was selling (1 big party?/ commercial) and who was buying (speculators)?


below the updated NG inventory chart, light green is 2014
so far nothing special, will get interesting if we get below 1000bcf

Feb NG went up 8 cents in 30 minutes just now (1:40-2:10 ET) with heavy vol. Has just dropped 5 cents of that increase in next 20 minutes. Crazy!

@crito If new “polar pig” unfolds as it has been forecast recently, we will get there very soon (1000 bcf).

@Alphachase,

Don't use bold or underline code when mentioning someone. Simply type @crito -- it's just like on twitter or facebook, just @Username. The end, nothing special.

The extreme 10 cent moves in one hour on NG this winter are making it look like 2006 again. Extremely large traders moving the market and battling it out.

This is from DCOT futures only report.
CFTC Commitments of Traders Long Report - Natural Gas (Futures Only)



23% of gross position longs are held by 4 traders. But since this includes commercial traders I don't know if we can gain anything from this.
