NATURAL GAS NOW FOCUSES ON $3.40/MMBTU
Tuesday’s positive price action in natural gas was on the back of increasing open interest and volume, allowing for extra gains in the very bear-term. Against this, the 2020 highs near the $3.40 mark per MMBtu (October 30) now turns out as the next target of significance.
