Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (09/11/2020)

Dear Sir or Madam,

For us Europeans, the seemingly endless wrangling over a final and official result of the US presidential election is difficult to understand. And while many would now like to get back to business as usual, it is to be feared that this issue will remain open for some time to come – at least that is what the statements of the current president suggest.

In his first public statements, President-elect Joe Biden (46th President) pointed out that, in addition to the overriding goal of reconciling a divided society, there are other issues that should be the focus of his administration from the first day of his presidency, which begins in January. These include the organised fight against the Corona crisis on the basis of scientific recommendations and the return to the United Nations Paris Climate Change agreement. Donald Trump had just identified these issues as particularly damaging to the US economy.

The European emissions trading scheme has acknowledged the probable end of uncertainty and the expected change in policy on the other side of the Atlantic with obvious goodwill. The price of EEA, which has recently been severely hit, has risen significantly. Even at the start of the new trading week, the principle “buy the rumour, sell the fact” does not seem to work, as the CO2 market is currently continuing its upward trend.
