ERCOT Buyers Near Perfection in Week of Big Moves

August 04, 2020

The risk appetite in ERCOT was 13% last week and 14% one year ago this week. But in our latest risk appetite report, buyers and brokers in this market had almost no interest in index/flex type products. The preference was nearly 100% in favor of fixed prices, a ratio rarely seen. NEPOOL buyers also made a significant move to fixed prices while PJM and NYISO pricing requests showed an increased week-over-week interest in index/flex pricing solutions.
