Investopedia explains 'Natural Gas ETF'


Natural gas ETFs (and those of other natural resources/commodities) opened well when they first began trading on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX). Having a more liquid way to access natural gas as both a speculative and hedging play is very useful to both retail and institutional investors. Investors should expect small tracking errors over shorter time frames, but see strong correlation to the spot price of natural gas over medium and longer time horizons.
