Natural Gas now looks to $2.40/MMBtu
Natural Gas prices posted decent gains on Wednesday amidst diminishing open interest and volume. That said, further gains now look unlikely, while the door now remains open for a potential move lower. Against this, the $2.40 mark per MMBtu still emerges as the next support of relevance.
