General Futures Resources:

If you're already familiar with the natural gas industry but aren't quite sure how our references about buying into the future fit into the picture, you may find some additional insight in the website links provided below. When we refer to the development of a proactive buying plan, the primary tool to accomplish this is the purchase of natural gas futures contracts on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX). As a business that consumes natural gas, you are considered a hedger when you utilize the NYMEX because any purchase of futures contracts directly relates to the use or consumption of the commodity of natural gas.

The first website link is a short-course on futures offered by TFC Commodity Charts. While this relates to all traded commodities, in general, the information also applies to natural gas futures contracts.

The second link is to a downloadable Adobe file from the NYMEX website. The NYMEX website has some advanced educational information available, but this file is simply a booklet that goes into detail about how the NYMEX was formed and how it works.
