ICIS is pleased to announce a webinar to explain why CCAs should not trade at the price floor

London, Dec 2013 – As part of the series of free market information ICIS provides, we will be hosting a webinar on 9 January  at 11am PST to explain why CCAs should not trade at the price floor.

Jan Frommeyer, Director Market Analysis at ICIS and experienced carbon market analyst , will explain his view on price formation in emissions trading schemes. The webinar will walk you through why behaviour is key to understanding price developments and why just using the fundamental balance comes up short.

Our ICIS analysis team will teach you what you need to know to gain an edge and help you understand why California Carbon Allowances should continue to trade above the price floor.

To register for this free webinar, please follow the registration link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7173482495574457857

The webinar will help participants to:

  • Understand why fundamental balances are not a good indicator for carbon price developments
  • Gain insight into the importance of behaviour as a price driver
  • Learn about the ICIS unique cap and trade market model
  • See ICIS CCA price forecast

After the presentation there will be a Q&A session where you will have the chance to pose questions directly to our analysts. If you can’t make the live webinar, you can still register and receive a link to a recording of the webinar.  All participants will also receive the presentation slides.
