There’s a 68% chance natural gas futures could settle between $2.95 and $3.43 per MMBtu between now and January 25, 2018. The forecast is based on the assumption that prices are normally distributed and natural gas’s latest implied volatility of 53.9%.

On January 18, 2018, natural gas prices settled at $3.19 per MMBtu. On January 13, natural gas futures closed at $3.42, the highest closing level since 2017. Higher natural gas prices could have a positive effect on the United States Natural Gas ETF (UNG), the ProShares Ultra Bloomberg Natural Gas (BOIL), and the First Trust ISE-Revere Natural Gas ETF (FCG) because they have exposure to natural gas futures.
