Energies: Highlights | June 2014

[EN] Prices in the European gas market have declined for the fourth time in a row. The US natural gas price volatility decreased, but remains on a high level. This article analyses the latest price developments and most important key figures for energies.

Taking the past 12 months into account, we have observed a price increase for crude oil Brent (+3.9%) and WTI (+7.2%) as well as for natural gas US (+10.1%). Since US and EU natural gas markets are not highly correlated, we have noticed a price decline of -24.3% for natural gas in Europe.

During the last month, Brent prices (+2.3%) have continued its upward trend and in contrast to the last month WTI prices (+5.0%) have started to increase again. Natural gas US prices (-1.6%) have stopped to rise and natural gas EU (-4.5%) has continued to decline. The highest price movements are still registered by the natural gas US market with an annualized volatility of 25.8%.
