Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER continued to trade flat and remained at 0.13 EURO (unch%).  ERUs are trading around 50% of this price with virtually no volume in carbon credits trading on the exchange.  Although a set aside vote for EUAs in the EU ETS is scheduled for next week, the track record of previous Member State votes implies no action will result at least not for the foreseeable future.
