Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2018-07-09)

Dear Sir or Madam,

A breakup of the grand coalition in Germany seems to have been averted, not least because the SPD, in view of bad poll numbers, also has no interest in new elections and has grudgingly accepted the asylum compromise.

An unstable Germany in a weakened Europe would probably be in the interest of Donald Trump, who has expressed the view that the European Union was merely founded to weaken the US economically.

The German benchmark index DAX has taken note of the agreement in Berlin sympathetically and gained more than 200 points in the past week and also the euro shows itself against the US dollar again slightly in the plus.

Despite weaker oil prices, prices for European CO2 emission allowances rose sharply by just under 5% in the previous trading week, but this is also explained by the increased energy consumption caused by the continual high temperatures in Europe.

This week, 12,639,000 new EU certificates and 4,360,000 EUAs from German contingents will be auctioned at the Leipzig EEX on Friday. On Wednesday, 4,593,500 UK EEA will be auctioned on the London ICE, bringing the total to 21,592,500 new allowances this week.

In August, the summer break is again with a halved auction volume, and this is known to all market participants scarcity is already priced in the current prices.
