Wholesale Energy Prices Update 4/1/2019

Once again, the market saw a quieter (and shorter) week, with the majority of the energy complex barely moving. This was despite oil's sharp recovery, instigated by signs that Saudi Arabia reduced exports in December, appearing to reinforce OPEC's announced cuts. We still look to be heading toward a possible global slowdown, considering the ongoing bickering and trade wars which appear likely to trim demand. Europe's forecast of continued mild weather, good January stock levels and falling carbon prices have offset oil's bullishness. Brent finished up 7% on the week at $57.06 a barrel weekly energy prices new year 2019 At home, despite the drop in temperature, the gas system continued to be healthy with Norway providing a strong supply  and LNG cargoes continuing in January. The more wintry weather looks to be moving as far back as late January and February. Once again, electricity tracked gas for the majority of the week, but with wind output varying. Coal, on the other hand, maintained its downward trajectory and carbon prices fell when trading resumed after Christmas.

Further out, curve prices saw minimal falls with oil bouncing back, but coal saw further declines. For the remainder of this winter, prices also fell, reflecting the delayed onset of the cold weather. latest year's energy wholesale prices January 2019 With the likelihood that the Leave vote will be happening next week, Brexit will probably reimpose its influence on prices again. However, the weather and similar fundamentals will continue to be a major factor. Those who are risk-averse may consider not waiting on these outcomes as either negative weather or Brexit could raise prices. However, those comfortable with some risk may benefit if an acceptable Brexit deal is reached.
