Futures Market News and Commentary
Jul Nymex natural gas (NGN20) on Thursday closed up +0.001 (+0.05%).
July nat-gas prices on Thursday settled little changed. Nat-gas prices initially moved lower Thursday on forecasts for cooler temperatures to move into the eastern United States.

Oil and gasoline prices also found support on concerns about Tropical Storm Cristobal as it heads toward the U.S. Gulf Coast, potentially causing disruptions for Gulf oil rigs and tanker deliveries in Gulf ports, along with disruptions at Gulf coast refineries where 45% of the total U.S. gasoline refining capacity is located.
Crude prices initially opened lower Thursday on concern OPEC+ lacks the unity to extend its crude production cuts. Saudi Arabia and Russ... Read more
