Navigating the Natural Gas Futures Market: The natural gas futures market is a place where any commercial player or speculator can come together with other entities and contract for future purchases or sales of natural gas. Because of the differing reasons and motivations of the participants, movement in natural gas futures is often times viewed as random or even counter logical. Having been involved with natural gas futures since 1991, SMC has found strong seasonal tendencies and that there are times of the year when movements are inspired by current fundamentals and times when movements become more controlled by the anxiety or comfort of something that may transpire in the future. SMC uses a seasonal approach to the market and looks for fundamentals to initiate and determine the magnitude of trends. While no approach to the market is perfect, SMC's is backed with a successful use of futures instruments for hedging and profit since 1991. Essentially, SMC lays out expectations for market movement and monitors fundamentals and technical considerations to attempt to identify factors that will create deviations or alterations. Do not look for SMC to make profound forecasts and predictions as SMC has been a player long enough to understand how weather and other factors outside of reasonable control can significantly alter a long term pricing outlook over weeks and even days. Probabilities, history, and experience come heavily into play in SMC's end product.
