Unpredictability and volatility is a way of life in energy trading. Global patterns of supply and demand shift in line with long-term demographics, and short-term geo-politics. New extraction methods are changing the cost base of oil and gas. Margins are under pressure and new regulations such as EMIR and REMIT are changing the rules for derivatives trading, clearing and reporting.
Increasingly firms require knowledge of global and local markets for a multitude of asset classes: biomass, coal, power, gas and oil trading are all closely correlated. Visibility across a comprehensive range of physical assets and related financial instruments is becoming critical to minimise energy trading risk.
