Natural Gas Futures
Natural gas futures contracts are usually based on the world’s
largest physical commodity futures exchange ... the NYMEX
... which in turn bases it’s measurement on natural
gas stocks delivered to the Henry Hub in Louisiana. However,
not all trading in natural gas commodities takes the Nymex
natural gas prices at the Henry Hub as the basis for the trade.
Trading in natural gas commodities can also be based on the
price of natural gas delivered to natural gas centers in other
parts of the United States and Canada and natural gas futures
can also be traded off the NYMEX and submitted to NYMEX via
Trading Natural Gas Commodities
Natural gas accounts for around 25 percent of energy consumption
within the United States and so you can see that natural gas
futures play an important part in the natural gas industry
and in the economy as a whole. Nor can the role of the NYMEX
natural gas prices be ignored when you’re considering
trading in natural gas commodities.
Each component relies heavily on all the others to ensure
that natural gas trading is a profitable way of doing business
in this industry.
