Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2017-08-21)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

despite all climate change denier, the month July 2017 is globally seen the warmest ever recorded July since the beginning of weather service records. The last three years became the warmest since 1880. The explanation, that El Niño is mainly responsible for these warming is also relative, because El Niño is already resolved.












The European carbon emissions compliance market rose strongly after breaking the resistance around 5.50 Euro. The market was closing 8% higher at 5.81.

But at that level it´s not unlikely, that the market will be faced with a consolidation, because next Friday summer time with halved auction volume will be finished and new 4.473 million German EUAs will find their way to the market. After that on September 4, the ordinary volume of 4.2615 European units are looking for bidders.
