Trading is hard. Trading natural gas is trading on hard mode. The market has constantly evolved since its inception over the last twenty years ago, as regulation, transparency and market developments (e.g. shale) have changed the game.

We discuss how the markets have evolved over the last twenty years and what it takes to be, and stay, relevant.
