Oil futures recovered from early losses Monday, and ended higher. U.S. Prices were up more than 1% after the expiration of June contracts at the end session. Fawad Rasaqzada is a market analyst with StoneX. He said that the recovery in oil prices was not driven by any specific factors. It remains to be determined where prices will go from here. The weaker demand narrative has now been priced in and short sellers will have less incentive to drive prices down than they did a few weeks ago. Natural-gas futures settled at the session’s lows after a recent rally of over 14%. On the expiration date of the June West Texas Intermediate crude , CLM23, +0.36%, the New York Mercantile Exchange saw the price rise 44 cents or 0.6% to $71.99 a barge. Natural gas NGM23, -7.16 % dropped 19 cents or 7.2 % to settle at 2.40 per million British Thermal Units on the contract’s expiration day.
