Natural Gas Hedger

A hedger in the natural gas market is an individual who uses the futures market to offset price risk when intending to sell or buy the actual natural gas. Hedging is possible because the natural gas cash prices and natural gas futures prices tend to move in the same direction. However, the difference between the cash price and the futures price may narrow or widen. The change in the difference between the cash price and the futures price is called basis risk. Because of the changing basis no hedge can be perfect.

    
Where can you hedge natural gas? Natural gas can be hedged on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX). The NYMEX offers a competitive and transparent market place to engage in efficient hedging strategies. If you are interested in hedging natural gas please contact us.
