Spot prices are set to increase in price over the next week but the rise is thought to be smaller than expected as although the temperatures will turn colder, the drop will not be as bad as first thought.
Spot Prices were mixed with wind output in Germany predicted to go down today and Hydro production and nuclear availability improving in France. Front-Month prices in France were higher than Germany for the first time since August 2012.
Spot Prices once again show a bearish trend due to the continued warmer weather and a low consumption forecast. In terms of supply the improved nuclear availability in France and higher lignite production in Germany may have an effect on prices although wind output is expected to drop considerably over the next few days.
