Natural gas futures rise, Macquarie gains

At one point, natural gas changed hands for more than $900 per million British thermal units at the ONEOK Gas Transportation hub in Oklahoma, according to commodities data provider S&P Global Platts. By Friday, prices at the hub had fallen back to about $14 per million British thermal units. That was still comparatively high: Benchmark futures for U.S. natural gas, which are tied to delivery at Henry Hub in Louisiana, have generally cost between $2.50 and $3.50 per million British thermal units in recent months. Shares of Macquarie  rose 3.4% in Sydney on Monday after the company raised its profit outlook. They are now down 2.8% over the past 12 months. Source: WSJ
