The ICIS EU ETS Portal is an online service delivering analysis, market insight and rich datasets. It helps carbon traders and analysts to make confident decisions and spot trends, as well as model the market and play out scenarios.

Our up-to-minute EU ETS analysis is perfect for traders and analysts who need fast access to the very best and very latest information.

Why we are different

At the heart of our analysis is the behaviour-driven ICIS Timing Impact Model (TIM), which utilises utility hedging rates, and banking behaviour of industrials. By combining these behaviour patterns with fundamental data the TIM forecasts the true market balance (or ‘trade balance’), which is ideal for understanding whether the market will be long or short. In other words we don’t just rely on fundamentals.

How are we qualified to do this? Our analysts have worked for power companies, trading houses and regulators; therefore they are uniquely positioned not only to analyse and model carbon markets around the world but also to spot the trends before other people.

Free access: Implications of MiFID II

Both emission allowance spot and derivative contracts are being classified as "financial instruments" due to the recast of the Markets in Financial Insturments Directive (MiFID II) and a corresponding new Regulation (MIFIR). While MiFID I concerned derivative emission contracts only, MiFID II covers the entire EU secondary spot and derivative market. The new rules entered into force on 2 July 2014 and are applicable starting from January 2017. Click the link below to download the full article.
