Natural Gas remains supported by $2.40/MMBtu
Tuesday’s downtick in prices of Natural Gas was accompanied by shrinking open interest, keeping extra losses somewhat contained and with the 200-day SMA around $2.46 per MMBtu holding the downside for the time being. This area of contention is also reinforced by the YTD lows in the $2.40 mark.
