Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
The decline in oil prices continued unabated in the past week. And again, news coming from the United States weighed on the price. This is due not only to the already known factors, namely the high inventories and the increasing production of fracking oil on. As is known recently, over the past 22 weeks, the number of boreholes for classical crude oil has also steadily increased and has currently reached the highest level since more than two years. Because effective countermeasures are not realistic, it just seems to be a matter of time when the 45-dollar mark will be again broken.
The CO2 market also recorded more easily in the wake of the oil price in the last week, but did not break through the previously stable support at EUR 4.87. The very low auctioning volume last week did not seem to have any effect on the market, especially as this week with an additional auction of Polish certificates on Wednesday the calendar is again well filled. In terms of the chart, a showdown between bulls and bears is currently at hand, as the downward trend of the past few weeks is slowly approaching the support line.
