    European Natgas, Gazprom and the EU Carbon Markets
    There is an interesting dynamic playing out in the European natural gas market.  Gazprom (read: Putin) wants a German certification body to give NS2 a thumbs up.  That body has a regulatory veto over NS2, a project that has been politically blessed recently by Germany and the US.  It is a very independent body in a very law-abiding country and I understand there are big legal concerns about whether NS2 adds to competition in the natgas market.  It doesn’t and instead entrenches Gazprom’s share …

    Ask Me Anything, With John Floyd.
    We recently interviewed John Floyd, head of macro strategies at Record Currency Management, where John explains his macro strategies for trading currencies and insights into the bond market. Floyd walks through macro indicators that he watches to inform his trades and develop his variant perception.  These data points have led Floyd to become bearish on the dollar relative to the yen. He also sees slowing economic growth, tensions between Northern and Southern Europe, and rising delta variant …

    A Sudbury Saturday Night
    I was glad to see the workers at the old Inco mines in Sudbury - the mining camp in Northern Ontario now owned by Vale, come to a deal with the bosses in Brazil.   When I grew up in Sudbury in the ‘70s and 80s, mining was a big deal - whole communities of Italians, Irish, Croats, Serbs, Hungarians, Finns, Franco-Ontarians,  Ukranians and Poles (mixed Polish and Ukranian friends were affectionately called Pukes back then) made good lives out of that ore.  They all had halls, clubs and other ass…

    Webinar on the Carbon Market
    I watched this webinar (I missed the live version) which included some of the key players in the (future) formation of a carbon market that can function at scale. The market is very diffuse right now -- there are 64 different markets! -- but demand for carbon offset credits is escalating at such a steep rate (might I say exponential?) that these guys think there will be a functioning worldwide carbon market (i.e. something akin to Brent Crude or WTI) within 2-5 years.  One interesting factoid …
