Web Extra: Burned by US Natural Gas Fund

Friday, 20 Aug 2010 | 7:40 PM ET

On 'Fast Money', our traders are always fast, but they aren't always right.

Brian Kelly of Kanundrum Capital, for example, got burned by US Natural Gas Fund . Since having recommended the stock on July 27, it's down 10%. Kelly said he bought UNG, but has since sold it. Despite a hot summer and hurricane season coming up, he would not get back into this trade.

Watch the video for Kelly's full comments on this misstep.
