Oil prices shed on Friday, after data indicated a lower-than-forecasted demand for crude in China and weaker stock markets. Brent crude lost 1.9% to $60.28 a barrel. Meanwhile, WTI crude tumbled by 2.6% to $51.20 a barrel.

British gas prices soared again on Friday, on predictions of lower temperatures and, consequently, stronger demand for heating. Moreover, reduced wind generation contributed to higher gas-for-power demand. The NBP spot price was 1.1% up at 66.95 p/therm. Further along the curve, January 2019 delivery contract ended 2.1% higher at 67.95 p/therm.

 

European spot electricity contracts were bearish on Friday. The German spot power price plummeted by 23.5% to end at 54.41 euros/MWh, on forecasts for an increase in wind production. At the same time, the French spot price tumbled by 18.6% to 61.30 euros/MWh, due to lower demand amid expectations for higher-than-average temperatures.

 

On the power curve, year-ahead electricity contracts posted slight gains, tracking the strong bullish evolution in carbon emissions prices. The German baseload electricity price for next year delivery rose 2.2% to 55.92 euros/MWh. The equivalent French contract traded 2.1% higher at 61.34 euros/MWh.

 

EUAs continued their upward trend to hit new highs above the €24-level on Friday. The carbon contract expiring in 2020 closed 4.6% up at 24.30 euros a tonne, in a tight auction.
 

Daily (11.01.2019): German spot power price fell by 26% on Thursday due to strong wind generation

Oil prices edged slightly higher on Thursday, tracking bullish equity markets following comments from the U.S. Federal Reserve chairman. However, gains were capped by waning optimism about the three-day U.S.-China trade talks, as these finalized with no concrete details. Concerns about a potential slowdown in global economy fuelled by weaker Chinese economic data also limited the rally in oil markets. On that background, Brent crude inched 0.4% up to $61.68 a barrel, while WTI futures settled 0.4% higher at $52.59 a barrel.
