Natural Gas still stays capped by $3.00

Prices of Natural Gas failed once again to test/surpass the key $3.00 hurdle on Friday, closing the session with modest losses. The downtick was accompanied by rising open interest, indicative that a probable correction lower lies ahead in the very near-term. On the flip side, the upside momentum is expected to gather extra steam once the $3.00 mark per MMBtu is cleared.
