  1. why is UNG more popular than USO?...Gas over Oil?...hmm..please explain...thanks!
  2. because people are obsessed with what they've lost money with.
  3. 1) UNG is lower-priced than USO. Traders can be attracted to cheaper stocks.
    2) Natural gas is intrinsically more volatile than crude oil.
    3) Natural gas is a domestic commodity with clearer fundamentals.
    Crude oil is an international commodity with opaque fundamentals.
    4) Natural gas is perceived as being an alternative energy source, not a fossil fuel with growing demand prospects.
    5) Natural gas can be seasonally more volatile during the Winter compared to crude oil. :cool:
  4. great answer...also, the options on UNG have more volume than USA...thanks...great insight...appreciate it
