Open interest in Natural Gas futures markets went up by around 4.5K contracts on Wednesday, partially reversing the previous daily drop according to preliminary prints from CME Group. Volume, on the other hand, shrunk by around 62.8K contracts after two builds in a row.
NATURAL GAS APPROACHES THE $3.00 MARK
