Natural Gas Prices Experience Reprieve from Selling

Economic Calendar reports: After five consecutive days of losses, natural gas prices are rebounding in today’s session, as the contract for July delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange is currently trading at $3.039/MMBtu, a gain of 2.05% for the day. A rebound from the lows on Monday suggested the recent rout in natural gas prices may have been nearing at least a temporary end. In addition, the July contract has been extremely oversold since the end of May, signaling that the decline was overextended and that a rebound was likely to develop. Natural gas prices were boosted from the session lows on Monday by news that Saudi Arabia and key allies cut ties today with Qatar, the world’s top seller of liquefied natural gas.
