Markets rallied after a dip earlier in the week, with gains across the board. After last week’s warmer weather, front month TTF futures rose by 3.5% to USD 6.87/MMBtu due to a persistent cold snap over the Easter weekend that looks unlikely to shift in the short term. Front month NBP futures painted a similar picture, up 3.3% to USD 6.78/MMBtu, offset marginally by several impending LNG deliveries to UK ports.

The exception was Henry Hub, which dipped to USD 2.46/MMBtu, its lowest point this year, as a result of the warmer-than-usual temperatures anticipated across much of the US.

Meanwhile oil prices recovered slightly after taking a hit on the back of US-Iranian nuclear talks starting up in Vienna. Brent and WTI both rose, by 0.9% and 1.2% respectively, to USD 62.74/bbl and USD 59.33/bbl.

European carbon prices hit yet another record high, breaking the EUR 44/t mark for the first time as traders returned from the Easter break.
