Energy market update 6/5/16
UK pricesIn the UK, sunny weather dampened the demand for oil and gas to fell prices initially. But with gas supply shortages later in the week, and heavier power station demand, gas recovered on its losses. Electricity prices were affected by planned power station outages and low wind output. Again, the week ended with little change on forward dated contracts. Markets remain volatile and susceptible to events like the Canadian wildfires. The underlying resurgence in prices remains fragile. But wholesale gas and electricity prices are holding onto a lot of their excess weight since mid-January lows. While much is still uncertain, we would repeat or advice of taking advantage of these lows and trying to avoid potential future rises.
