End-of-Day market price forward curves

  • Contains smart algorithm to calculate expected forward curves
  • End-of-day curves based on settlement market data
  • Applicable to power, gas and other commodity markets
  • Available as a data service, and as software solution
KyCurve helps trading, structuring and risk management to construct monthly, daily, hourly and half-hourly price forward curves based on end-of-day settlement data. The curves match with all the relevant price quotations in the market, so are arbitrage free. At the same time, the curves follow seasonal, daily and hourly historical shapes. The model relies on an advanced statistical methodology to find these shapes.

End-of-day forward curves are widely used for marking-to-market all trading positions and are a fundamental piece of information for any company active in the energy and commodity market.

Benefits

1. Get a good price forward curve

A good forward curve includes seasonal patterns, deviates between weekdays and weekends, incorporates public holidays, and contains the right level of variation between the hours. KyCurve performs all these tasks automatically when new settlement data arrive. The KyCurve model can be used to construct detailed curves for power, gas and other commodity markets.

2. Integration with valuation and risk modules

The optimization and valuation models of the KYOS Analytical Platform can be triggered when a new end-of-day price forward curve is created by KyCurve. This give you always optimal pricing and hedging information that can be used for trading and reporting purposes.

3. Use advanced model or get price curves as a service

The KyCurve model can be delivered as a model in the KYOS Analytical Platform. This allows you to schedule calculations based on your own settings and data feeds. Alternatively, KYOS offers price forward curves for many European power and gas markets as a service via www.pricecurves.com. Depending on your preference, you can choose between both possibilities.
