Carbon Trading

The ICE daily CER continued to trade as a political option with notional pricing, losing another 1 Eurocent after news that Ukraine issued another 31.5 million new carbon credits last week.  It finished the day at 0.18 EURO (-5.26%).  The rest of the market remains beneath this price and ERUs are trading around 30% of this price.  Too many ERUs and CERs already flood the market and more are printed every month.
