US natural gas futures settled at a two-week high, on fears of a possible rail strike, offsetting expectations that heating demand will fall as the weather turns milder than usual.

Traders also noted that the market will be able to restart the Texas LNG export plant in mid-December as planned. For the plant, increasing demand for gas at the same time as cold winter weather will boost heating demand.

At the same time, natural gas trading comes with continuous gains in recent days after a historic snowstorm hit New York state over the weekend.

Analysts said NOAA's 6- to 10-day forecast shows above-normal temperatures for most of the central US, with cooler temperatures expected only in part of the Northeast, potentially reducing heating demand in late November. However, the Weather Service's updated 3- to 4-week forecast covering early to mid-December suggests that cooler-than-normal conditions will return in nearly the northern US, which could boost heating demand again.Natural Gas Technical Analysis
