@ElChacal I believe a high percentage is associated, which is why they keep producing even though prices don't support. (Waha has been under $1 often in the last 3 months and I believe the Waha First of the Month price for December was actually negative. Meaning if you sold somebody gas at Waha based upon First of Month Index, you would have had to pay them to take it from you!)



Lack of pipelines and storage correct. No other option but to flare it.

ridiculous

What are you trading? The price of NG or are you a producer/consumer? How many contracts are you trading daily weekly monthly? this is utterly ridiculous.

$850 is the drop for maintenance margin. It's $935 for initial margin.

For clarification, that is only partly correct. $850 is the actual reported drop in margin. This is the change in initial margin for NYMEX members. This is how they think about it, and how they announce it. (Margin Decrease Announcement). Its also the only margin number they list on their website (NYMEX NG Margins). It is true though that Non-member initial margin is set at 110% of member margin, which you are correct would equal a $935 drop for non-members. As a member I think about it as an $850 drop. As a non-member you think about it as 110% of $850 or $985. Maybe semantics to many, but there is an actual difference.
