We expect the rise of natural gas to continue during its upcoming trading.

Spot natural gas prices (CFDS ON NATURAL GAS) settled on an increase in its recent trading at intraday levels, to record daily losses until the moment of writing this report, by -1.29%, to settle at the price of $8.157 per million British thermal units. This is after its rise in trading yesterday and for the fifth day of out of 6 sessions, a rate of 4.30%.

Lower production and more expectations for early summer heat sent natural gas futures higher again on Tuesday. July rose 34.1 cents to $8,394.
