Natural Gas ETF
Prices of oil and natural gas are closely related of course, but sometimes remarkable differences may be noted. These differences do not appear in long term analysis but they do on a day-to-day basis. It is absolutely possible that the oil price is declining throughout the day whereas the natural gas price is rising.
Another point to take in is that the natural gas ETF is often more volatile on a daily basis than the oil ETF. The reason for this is probably that trading in oil involves much higher volumes than trading natural gas. Less active investors and speculators may cause larger price variations.
This interesting fact, the fact that the price of a natural gas ETF is more volatile on a daily basis than the price of oil but not in the long run, is very useful in a smart investing strategy.
Whenever I expect that prices for oil & gas will rise I always buy either the oil ETF or the natural gas ETF, dependent upon which is lowest on the day I want to get in. Prices of gas may vary more than 100% within some years so the returns may be high in this market, when you play your cards right that is.
