Open interest in natural gas futures markets reversed the previous daily drop and went up by around 22.7K contracts on Tuesday according to preliminary readings from CME Group. In the same line, volume rose for the third consecutive session, now by around 221K contracts.
NATURAL GAS NOW TARGETS THE 2021 HIGH
