- For all your atmospheric 'hedging needs!'
"At present, all of the emissions and other futures and options contracts that are associated with GreenX are listed for trading and clearing by NYMEX, which currently has
- responsibilities for these contracts."
9/30/10, NY/London: "Green Exchange LLC ("GreenX") today announced the date for the migration of the environmental suite of products currently listed and traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. ("NYMEX") Designated Contract Market (DCM) to the Green Exchange DCM. The European and US environmental futures and options contracts will be transferred from NYMEX to the Green Exchange DCM for trade date January 24, 2011 granting oversight of and responsibility for the migrated contracts to the new Exchange. NYMEX currently has over 32,000 contracts of open interest across a global customer base in the Green Exchange products, and the transfer of all client positions from NYMEX to Green Exchange is expected to
- occur between trade dates January 21 and January 24, 2011.
Tom Lewis, Chief Executive of Green Exchange, commented: "Concurrent with the existing futures and options contracts listed and traded on NYMEX, we have been working for over a year to lay the foundation to establish a stand-alone exchange. We recently announced our designation as a contract market by the US CFTC, admitted our first clearing member, and have seen a marked increase in our trading volumes. We will continue to work with
- the global carbon trading community
to understand their needs and will be making further announcements soon regarding other enhancements to our products and services."
In addition, Green Exchange has announced it intends to list a
- Daily European Union Allowance (EUA) Futures Contract
to begin trading on November 1, 2010. This physically deliverable futures contract will initially be listed on the NYMEX DCM, cleared by CME Clearing, and will be transferred to Green Exchange alongside the existing suite of environmental products. The Daily EUA Futures Contract will trade on CME Globex® and will be available for OTC clearing through CME ClearPort®. This will be the first daily expiration futures contract listed via CME Globex®, and as such represents new functionality within CME Globex®....
The Daily EUA Futures contract will concurrently list two consecutive delivery dates for trading: one for the current trading day and another for the next trading day, providing participants
- multiple short term trading opportunities.
"The addition of the Daily EUA Futures contract allows us to offer our customers a full range of risk management tools
- to hedge their carbon exposure.
Customers will be able to manage their short-term cash flow demands
with the existing EUA futures contracts", said Henrik Hasselknippe, Green Exchange's Managing Director for Global Product Development."...
Commenter to video report about Europol assessment of organized crime in carbon trading:
- "Why am I not surprised?
I hate to be associated with a bunch of crazy right wingers, but you don't have to be paranoid to see that the
- climate business is rotten to the core,
from the publicly funded climate scientists to the publicly funded (by VAT fraud)
- climate mob."
Why wouldn't the US taxpayer supported congress have put a stop to our participation in this ages ago? There is only one possible answer. ed.
