WAYNE, Pa., Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Planalytics Inc. announced today that Ace Ethanol LLC has licensed the EnergyBuyer(SM) service to help the company monitor natural gas market prices and identify when it is a good time to buy or hedge its natural gas.

Planalytics EnergyBuyer continuously analyzes market conditions to provide clients with straightforward “buy” or “don’t buy” guidance up to a year in advance. The EnergyBuyer’s suggestions are derived from a combination of variables that include market fundamentals, technical analysis, future weather conditions and market trading factors that impact prices on both the Nymex and Globex platforms.
