We model the joint movements of daily returns on one-month future for crude oil, heating oil and natural gas through the multivariate GARCH with dynamic conditional correlations and elliptical distributions introduced by Pelagatti and Rondena [Pelagatti, M.M., Rondena, S., 2007. ""Dynamic Conditional Correlation with Elliptical Distributions"", unpublished manuscript. Universita di Milano - Bicocca, August]. Futures prices of crude and heating oil covary strongly. The conditional correlation between the futures prices of natural gas and crude oil has been rising over the last 5 years. However, this correlation has been low oil average over two thirds of the sample, suggesting that future markets have no established tradition of pricing natural gas as a function of developments on oil markets.
