Natural Gas Trading
Natural Gas Futures Trading Defined and Explained
Natural gas accounts for almost a quarter of United States energy consumption, and the NYMEX Division natural gas futures contract is widely used as a national benchmark price. The futures contract trades in units of 10,000 million British thermal units. The price is based on delivery at the Henry Hub in Louisiana. According to NYMEX, the spread between natural gas futures and electricity futures can be used to manage price risk in the power markets.
