Considering advanced prints from CME Group for natural gas futures markets, open interest rose for the second session in a row on Friday, now by nearly 8K contracts. Volume, instead, dropped for the third straight session, this time by more than 2K contracts.
Natural gas prices rose to fresh monthly tops near the $3.00 mark before ending Friday’s session with modest losses. The move was amidst rising open interest and opens the door to further correction in the very near term. That said, the $3.00 region per MMBtu remains a tough barrier for natural gas bulls for the time being.
