The Only Natural Gas ETF to Own as Prices Rebound

Natural gas prices have dipped in 2015. They're trading at $2.71 per million BTUs as of March 3, for a drop of more than 22% from their December price of $3.50 per million BTUs.

But Money Morning's Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says prices are headed higher in 2015.

That's why we're recommending a natural gas ETF today. It tracks natural gas futures, which gives it a double-digit profit potential when prices are climbing. Now that prices are low, it's the perfect time to buy.

But this double-digit profit opportunity won't last forever. Moors says we're about to see three "super shifts" in the natural gas industry that will push prices higher through 2015...

One has to do with technical breakthroughs, while the other revolves around increasing the efficiency of the end-usage.

Both involve impressive profit opportunities. Here's everything you need to know...

The Stock Poised to Surge from Cheap Oil and a Strong Dollar

Massive new oil supply has led Saudi Arabia to compete for market share by dramatically cutting prices. The impact of this cheap oil in North America is mixed. But certain regions are clear beneficiaries, such as those surrounding auto-reliant Detroit.

Just across the roughly 1.5 mile expanse of the Ambassador Bridge from Detroit is Windsor, Canada. Its fortunes are tightly interwoven with those of the Motor City. One Canadian firm with operations in Windsor is sure to benefit from the glut of cheap oil.

That 1.5 miles might be just far enough to create an excellent profit play away from more dubious Detroit picks...

The Solution to Alternative Energy's Biggest Roadblock

The alternative energy sector may have found a solution to its storage problem: the hydrogen battery.

Hydrogen's chief problem as an alternative energy source has always been the staggering price of delivery and transportation. But one company is making strides daily toward energy storage efficiency and price reduction.

We may be on the verge on something quite important for the entire energy sector. Here's everything you need to know...

The Renewable Energy Market Gives Us a License to "Grow" Money

The renewable energy market is poised to take a major step forward. In this "post-oil" age, biofuels are gaining market share.

And North America is now expected to generate the largest share of revenue.

Solar Power Is at a Tipping Point… and the Upshot Is Massive Profits

Solar power is leading the clean energy sector toward a tipping point. It's a brand new age for renewable energy. Gone are the days of requisite private investment for progress and innovation.

Because it's all about grid parity now – the point at which the cost of generating renewable energy suddenly becomes equal to its peers.

Which means the money is about to flood in. Here's what to expect...

Why Renewable Energy Is Attracting the Smart Money

Renewable energy is gaining momentum. In fact, global capital investment in clean energy rose 16% in 2014. Some have even dubbed the recent surge toward clean energy a "turning point."

After all, the total invested in renewable power jumped last year to $310 billion, just $17 billion shy of the all-time record in 2011.

So where do you think the "smart money" is headed?

How to Invest When an "Unstoppable Trend" Seems to Be Over

Keith Fitz-Gerald knows how to invest in the energy sector. He says it's still minting millionaires.

But right now, with oil prices so low, mainstream investors are too caught up in the short term.

But current oil prices are actually a big "green light" for investment, not a big red stop sign -- here's how to play it...

This Country's Huge "Pricing Error" Will Send These Shares Soaring

"They couldn't possibly be that stupid"…

That's what my friend John, a London-based trader, said when I called him to verify that he saw what I was seeing on my own trading screens here in the wilds of Oregon.

It was Tuesday morning, November 4, and nearly everything in the energy complex was red.

November West Texas crude oil had dropped to $87.31/barrel, while Brent crude oil set a new two-year low at $91.53. Prices have since dropped to four-year lows of around $75 and $78, respectively.

They could fall even further – all because Saudis started another oil price war.

OPEC's largest oil producer had just announced that they were cutting oil prices for customers in the United States. The idea is to squeeze margins on U.S. shale production to where it's not profitable to produce.

Naturally, the Saudis fiercely deny the notion of a price war. But you don't have to be a genius to read between the lines.

The Saudis are very frustrated that they are losing control over pricing power they've held for decades. It's annoying them to no end. So, they're fighting back the only way they know how in an attempt to shift the balance back in their favor – by starting a price war with the United States. Unbelievably, they think they can win!

My take is that the Saudis have just made the biggest strategic "pricing error" in the kingdom's history. And, in doing so, they've actually cleared the way for America's shale energy boom and opened up a killer opportunity for this month's recommendation, in particular...

This Great Energy Opportunity Won't Stay Overlooked for Long

The U.S.-Chinese accord on climate control may have grabbed headlines last week, but the trade pact signed between China and Australia is likely to have a much bigger impact.

In the shadows of the G20 meeting in Brisbane, Canberra inked a free trade agreement with Beijing that will see tariffs on all resources and energy products removed within two years.

By agreeing to the deal, Australia will now reap the benefits of zero tariffs on major exports like iron ore, gold, crude oil, and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

But that's not the only upside "Down Under."

This landmark agreement could also have a big impact on a tiny Australian oil stock...
