The European Carbon Market -EU ETS
At the end of a very calm and balanced week the price of carbon allowances on Friday, 09.10.2015, increased significantly by more than 20 cents on Monday. At the close of trading the December futures recorded a level of 8.35 euros, only two cents below the session high. The same settlement price posted the market last seven weeks before.
The market situation, however, in the coming months will not be dominated by the expected upsurge of political and editorial statements in the context of the World Climate Summit in Paris. Although the expected decisions might proof extremely important, they hardly will have any effect on the ETS. Only an absolutely disappointing outcome of the summit might also impact negatively on the price for the European allowances. Rather, it is assumed that with rising demand and lower willingness to sell current surplus of certificates, the price will continue to rise calmly.
In the wake of prices for EUAs also reduction certificates have risen considerably in the past few weeks. CER costs now almost 20 percent more than at the end of last month.
