Keep A Close Eye On These Natural Gas ETFs As Prices Surge (UNG, DGAZ, BOIL)

July 30, 2012


Natural gas started off the year as one of the worst-performing commodities, thanks to a global recession that promised a slowdown in consumption at a time supplies were more than plentiful. But investors might want to take a second look at the natural gas market as it staged a sharp recovery, tagging on gains of more than 70 percent in the past three months, according to an article on ETF Daily News.

These natural gas ETFs have tagged on some of the highest returns following the natural gas rally:

  • United States Natural Gas Fund (NYSEArca: UNG): +51 percent
  • VelocityShares 3X Long Natural Gas ETN (NYSEArca: DGAZ): +163 percent
  • ProShares Ultra DJ-UBS Natural Gas (NYSEArca: BOIL): +89 percent


Investors should trend carefully, as the recent jump remains a bit of a gamble and no one is certain how long this rally may last, the article said.
