ON EUROPEAN ENERGY MARKETS
The price of energy commodities has decoupled from its intrinsic value over the past years. Once-in-a-lifetime events seem to happen every other month. Prices can be ‘unreasonable’ for longer than traders can stay in a position. It is now more important than ever to keep a cool head in an uncertain world.
Global financial players from Asia and the US have entered European energy markets and brought with them their technical expertise. Established legacy players in Europe are now competing with quants and technical analysts from around the world.
A TECHNICAL EVOLUTION
Technical analysis has slowly become the preferred method to understand and trade European energy. It is the basis for risk management, systematic, and algorithmic trading, and the standard for financial markets in general.
It helps formulate timely and objective trading strategies without getting overwhelmed by erratic price moves and market noise.
LOCAL MARKET, GLOBAL PLAYERS
The Dutch Title Transfer Facility (TTF) has evolved into the most-liquid gas market in Europe and is now the continent’s reference point. The TTF is also emerging as the global benchmark for LNG trade, side-by-side with the US Henry Hub and the Asian JKM/EAX.
It is now more important than ever for American and Asian energy players to observe, understand, and predict future price moves of European energy commodities. Gas, power, coal, emissions, crude oil, LNG and currencies are all delicately linked. Only a superior understanding of their interplay will yield satisfactory trading results.
