NATURAL GAS TARGETS THE 2022 HIGH AT $9.75
Prices of natural gas started the week in a positive fashion and closed above the $8.00 mark with certain conviction and amidst increasing open interest and volume. Against that, further rebound seems likely in the very near term and therefore natural gas keeps targeting the YTD high at $9.75 per MMBtu (July 26).
