Editorial Review - Book Description:
This great `how to` book covers the various mechanics of natural gas trading, including the physical (cash) market for natural gas production, transportation, distribution, and consumption. The heart of the text is the definition and demonstration of financial trading tools and techniques. It closes with discussion of more complex structures of trading and the author`s philosophy on how a risk management department should function within a natural gas trading company.

Excellent Resource for Natural Gas Traders, December 4, 1998 Bymmarino@jettapc.com (Fort Worth, Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Trading Natural Gas: Cash, Futures, Options and Swaps (Hardcover) Was very pleased with the material contained in this book. Although I am a beginner in the natural gas trading field, I found Sturm's book both easy to understand yet challenging in its scope. A great deal of emphasis is placed upon various hedging techniques and many helpful diagrams are included to portray the trading flow. Overall a very unique and insightful book for beginners and for those with years of experience in trading natural gas.

educational sources for practical trading purposes, July 15, 2005 ByMichael Ding (ding@abriafunds.com) - See all my reviews This review is from: Trading Natural Gas: Cash, Futures, Options and Swaps (Hardcover) I have not seen any book that describes its domain with such generous detail and is geared for real life trading. The contents may not be enough for those who trade only financial energy instruments, but it is indeed a good course material for the market makers, and hedgers, namely end users and producers. I highly recommend this book to those who are involved in natural gas industry.

A Great Book to Learn Natural Gas Trading, August 4, 2006 Byjgalt "this_is_jgalt_speaking" (Indianapolis, IN United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Trading Natural Gas: Cash, Futures, Options and Swaps (Hardcover) Even if you do not have a solid understanding of derivatives, this book is really good explaining step by step how the different derivatives are used for hedging natural gas; regardless if you are the producer, trader, or end user. The author gives many examples of how each derivative works. I highly recommend this book if you are starting out as a junior trader, risk products trader, supply planner, etc.
