Warsaw Market & Carbon Watch - Thursday 28 February

Greetings from Kiev!  Here is this morning’s Ukrainian stock performance summary, from the Warsaw Stock Exchange, based on the prior trading day's closing bell.  The Warsaw Stock Exchange closed up (+0.81%), in line with the main European markets (FTSE +0.88%, STOXX +1.61%, CAC +1.92%, DAX +1.04%, IBEX +1.95%) band the U.S. markets (DOW +1.26%, S&P +1.27%, NASDAQ +1.04%).  Looking at Ukrainian equities in particular across the Warsaw Stock Exchange, their index over performed the main Warsaw equities index, closing up (+1.36%) with gains in Astarta, Sadovaya, Ovostar, KDM Shipping, Milkiland, IMC and Agroton driving the movement.  From a market depth standpoint, the highest trading volumes occurred in Kernel (60,360 shares), Westa (40,124 shares) and Sadovaya (30,590 shares).

For specific results kindly see the table below, prices denoted in Polish currency (Zlotys).  Cheers – Jon

WSE WIG Index (total return index for Warsaw Stock Exchange listed companies): 46241.92 (+0.81%)

Ovostar Union NV (OVO PW):  96.50 (+2.66%)
Kernel Holding SA (KER PW):  65.70 (-0.23%)
Agroton Public Limited (AGT PW):  10.00 (+0.91%)
Astarta Holding NV (AST PW):  70.00 (+3.70%)

Sadovaya Group SA (SGR PW):  1.91 (+2.69%)
Westa Intl Scientific Group (WES PW):  0.61 (-3.17%)

Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER continued to trade as a political option with notional pricing, however it went "bezerk" adding 14 Eurocents on screen to 0.31 EURO (+82.35%).  This was due to short squeeze trading on 5 million units volume.  The rest of the market remains beneath this price and ERUs are trading at far less than 20% of this price.  Only a political decision to address massive oversupply can turn things around and it looks like such a decision is becoming a long-shot in the EU ETS.  In the meantime, too many ERUs and CERs already flood the market and more are printed every month.

Greetings from Kiev!  Here is this morning’s Ukrainian stock performance summary, from the Warsaw Stock Exchange, based on the prior trading day's closing bell.  The Warsaw Stock Exchange closed down (-0.90%), in line with the main European markets (FTSE -1.34%, STOXX -3.07%, CAC -2.67%, DAX -2.27%, IBEX -3.20%) but worse than the U.S. markets (DOW +0.84%, S&P +0.61%, NASDAQ +0.43%).  Looking at Ukrainian equities in particular across the Warsaw Stock Exchange, their index slightly tracked the main Warsaw equities index, closing down (-0.77%) with KDM Shipping the only winner for the day.  From a market depth standpoint, the highest trading volumes occurred in Kernel (71,823 shares) and Westa (33,175 shares).

Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER continued to trade as a political option with notional pricing, addition two Eurocents to 0.17 EURO (+13.33%).  Actual volume is trading beneath this price and ERUs are trading at far less than 50% of this price.  Exchange listed prices are nothing more than advertisements or wishful thinking by a small group of ambitious traders trying to convince speculators that there is something happening... or posting prices to mark their portfolios above loss levels for accounting reasons.  Nobody is following these prices or trading at these levels.  Only a political decision to address massive oversupply can turn things around and it looks like such a decision is becoming a long-shot in the EU ETS.  In the meantime, too many ERUs and CERs already flood the market and more are printed every month.

Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER continued to trade as a political option with notional pricing, gaining back the one yo-yo Eurocent to 0.15 EURO (+7.14%).  Actual volume is trading beneath this price and ERUs are trading at less than 50% of this price.  Exchange listed prices are nothing more than advertisements or wishful thinking by ambitious traders trying to convince speculators that there is something happening.  Nobody is following them.  Only a political decision to address massive oversupply can turn things around and after Monday, it looks like that decision is possibly not going to happen in the EU ETS.  EU lawmakers yesterday decided to put their back-loading plan to a full parliamentary vote before discussing it with individual country ministers - which at best means the plan is in serious trouble and at worse signals it's dead.  Nobody should be surprised at this twist given the EU's track record of whiffing on previous efforts.  In the meantime, too many ERUs and CERs already flood the market and more are printed every month.

Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER improved 2 Eurocents to 0.13 EURO (-27.78% YTD).  ERUs are trading around 50% of this price with virtually no volume in carbon credits trading on the exchange.  The United Nations recently stated that it lacked funds to undertake the first round of climate change treaty negotiations in 2015, which sort of sums of the market as a whole currently.  On the other hand, departing EPA chief Linda Jackson stated that President Barack Obama was serious about tackling the problem of greenhouse gas emissions in the USA.  Under current carbon market conditions anything optimistic coming from the USA is welcome and newsworthy.
