Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2017-12-11)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

The CO2 market was dominated by bearish influences in the past week. Since there was no new impetus from the policy, the traders apparently oriented more strongly on the energy complex. The price trend on the oil market was the significant impulse here as the release of stock data from the United States sent oil prices strongly down. Although the price of crude oil recovered quickly thanks to strong import data from China, the carbon market on Friday did not yet follow this counter movement. Instead, apparently automated sales orders have further put the price under pressure. As a result, the oil price changed little at the end of the week, while European pollution rights signed much lighter.

Today’s trading day marks the start of the last week of this year’s auction calendar. It would therefore not be particularly surprising if the CO2 price were now set to recover, too.
