Natural now looks to $3.40/MMBtu
Prices of natural gas navigate the area above the key $3.00 mark per MMBtu early on Monday. Friday’s positive price action was amidst an increment in open interest and hints at the idea that further gains remain on the cards. That said, the 2020 highs around $3.40/MMBtu (October 30) emerge as the next hurdle of note.
