CA and General Market Commentary:

  • ARB announced the results of its February Allowance auction. The auction for current vintage allowances was fully subscribed, with a clearing price of $15.73 ($0.11 above the floor price) and a bid-to-cover ratio of 1.21, indicating strong demand.
  • ClimeCo’s estimate of the 2020 CA auction floor price is unchanged this month, as CPI-U numbers increased slightly in January, but still remain below zero for the period since October 2018, the baseline for the CPI-U annual increase.
