Buyers in ERCOT did an about face this week as they took a dramatic risk-off approach to commodity buying. The drop from a 22% to 7% ratio of index/flex to fixed pricing requests is a significant week-over-week shift.
There was a slight increase in NEPOOL, a slight decrease in NYISO, and a moderate decrease in index and or flex type products in PJM.
