Natural Gas ETFs Get Obama Boost

In 2012, this resilience has held up. Since the start of the year, UNG and GAZ have tumbled over 10% each. FCG, meanwhile, has dipped only 2%. AMJ is sitting in positive territory, scoring nearly 2% gains.

The prospects for these products are further aided by the fact that the government is showing an increasing interest in promoting the natural gas industry's growth. As Washington works to institute the broad energy plan proposed this week by President Obama, the companies tracked by these products could be in for some encouraging upward action.

Whether you prefer to take aim at natural gas through futures or equities, it is important to keep in mind that the industry is most appropriate as a small-niche holding.
