Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER continued to trade in range, closing flat after opening higher initially and returning to 0.13 EURO (unch%).  ERUs are trading around 50% of this price with virtually no volume in carbon credits trading on the exchange.  The EU ETS market remains the "sick man of Europe" as eyes and ears carefully follow today's State of the Union address by President Barack Obama for possible clues to a U.S. climate action plan between now and 2016.
