Mexico’s mid-term auctions predict rising 2018 capacity prices despite disappointing results

Mexico’s first mid-term auction closed in early March, just days after the announcement of the final capacity (potencia) balancing market price was revealed for 2017.

While the results of the auction - which had been seen as an important potential source of pricing signals and even a liquidity driver for the near term - were disappointing given the lack of deals, the one transaction which cleared the auction implied rising price expectations for potencia contracts through 2018 compared to the previous year.
