Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER continued to trade in range, gaining another cent to reach 0.14 EURO (+7.69%).  ERUs are trading around 50% of this price.  Kyoto units are trading in low volumes while everyone watches today's EUA back-loading proposal vote in the EU.  This vote would be the first of several required votes to execute such a set aside this year, and not the hardest one.  In the meantime, the market continues to witness continuous new issuances of ERUs and CERs on top of existing oversupply.
