The current prices on the European carbon market are as follows:


EUA prices are still under pressure as market tests levels last seen in June. It seems that the only supportive factor at the moment are bullish forecasts for longer term while everything else is working against EUAs. Auctions have continuously cleared below the market recently. Energy and equity markets have been under pressure as the virus outlook keeps worsening. Since the downtrend in EUAs started in mid-September, prices have dropped by over 25%. There is still further room for a decrease and prices may approach close to 20 EUR/EUA where lies the biggest options open interest for December expiry. Options have seen increased interest in puts while calls decreased in October. As US election date approaches on November 2, we might see elevated volatility on equity markets which could translate to EUAs as well.

German power prices are down 1 EUR/MWh since last week, with the front year contract trading at 37.55 EUR/MWh. API2 coal prices are down 1.5 USD/tonne since last week, with the Cal21 contract trading at 57.50 USD/tonne. EUR/USD is down 120 points since last week and is currently trading at 1.1750.
