As you would expect, natural gas consumption is highly seasonal. Questar is a natural gas holdings company headquartered in Utah. Every year for the past 15 years, STR has rallied for the 70 days starting 3/25. The average move over the 70 days is 10.1%.
Taking a look at the option chain you can see contracts expiring in 24, 52, 115, or 206 days. I have modeled a costless ratio spread that can give you leveraged exposure. If the trade moves against you, then you only pay commission. This trade uses July call options at the 23 and 24 strike. Take a look:
By selling 10 contracts that are twice the price of the 20 contracts you purchase, some of the time-decay associated with being long a call option can be absorbed, while still enjoying an exponential payoff and capping the max loss. The main 'caution area' is when STR is $23-$25, where you want to ensure time premium does not erode the position. Stay smart and trade safe!
