October 10, 2022
When it comes to market-based risk, protection from it is beating participation in it. NEPOOL and PJM market participants showed the highest interest in market-based risk. Buyers and brokers in NYISO once again led the interest in “risk off” with a strong preference for fixed price solutions. ERCOT participants continued the on again, off again pattern with a dramatic drop in their risk appetite compared to previous weeks.
