EBW seamlessly integrating natural gas market analysis with cutting-edge weather forecasting through partnership with Oklahoma-based Weather Decision Technologies

Weather industry leader Weather Decision Technologies (WDT) has partnered with award-winning EBW AnalyticsGroup to provide next-generation analysis of U.S. natural gas and electricity markets via Energy Market Outlook (EMO). Energy Market Outlook has been correctly assessing market direction using a comprehensive analysis of quantitative and qualitative factors, including supply/demand fundamentals, weather, and key technical indicators. WDT’s WeatherOps Futures team now adds unprecedented value by providing cutting-edge global forecast data and interpretation that will significantly enrich the EBW Analytics product offering.

EBW’s Energy Market Outlook provides decision makers and traders with natural gas supply and demand projections that accurately account for rapidly improving technology. Unparalleled expertise is also offered in an increasingly coal displacement-driven market. With EMO, tap into integrated weather and gas analytics that provide unequaled transparency and greatly enhance your bottom line in energy market risk-facing endeavors.

Andy Weissman, founder of EBW and one of the country’s leading experts in natural gas and electricity markets, explains: “Traditional analysis frameworks must modernize to remain relevant. Merging our top-flight gas analytics team—with a proven historical track record of being the first to call major market moves—with best-in-class weather forecasting creates a must-have product for following the natural gas market.”

“WDT futures products are constructed with a rigorously scientific meteorological approach. Our team starts with the state of today’s atmosphere…what processes are driving the current pattern… before we begin analysis of the models,” says Jason Lynn, SVP WeatherOps Forecast Services, a division of WDT. He adds, “Typical mainstream forecasting efforts begin at what we consider to be a mid-way point through the forecast process, and/or try to use statistical relationships among non-physical parameters to find some additional forecast skill. Understanding what processes are currently influential on the pattern, where they are at in their life cycles, and what additional processes could become active yields a more informed forecast approach and increases a forecaster’s ability to recognize important model variances.”

Energy Market Outlook is available in three tiers—daily reports, which include the renowned Market Quick Takes; weekly reports; and detailed monthly and seasonal assessments with a long-term view for a customizable, comprehensive data and analysis package that meets the needs of any size organization.

WDT WeatherOps Futures is comprised of a team of meteorologists who create medium range, sub-seasonal, and seasonal forecasts to directly support traders in volatile commodities markets that require careful consideration of many dynamic fundamental components that can affect both Supply and Demand.
