NYMEX Plus flexible natural gas purchasing with built-in risk management.

Effectively manage your risk by having the ability to separate and individually manage the two primary components of a fixed price. Lock in your basis cost while leaving the commodity component subject to NYMEX pricing. You can then make decisions through the contract to actively manage the commodity portion or allow it to settle at the NYMEX price.

What is a trigger

A trigger is a buy order for a particular volume. It can be set to buy at the current market price, also called Buy-at-Market. A trigger can also be set as a price target below the current market price or as a price ceiling, which would indicate the maximum price the customer wants to pay.
