The story of the week was bad weather reducing volumes and pushing up prices, as supply was cancelled at the beginning of the week. Prices went (too) high and came off sharply as the week progressed. Top to bottom down -5.50 NOK / -6.27%. Further NOK weakness contributed to larger falls for EURO buyers. Fresh volumes for week 41 were 24,679 (vs 25,537 wk41 2022). Looking forward to next week potential for more bigger fish 5+. Early pricing is limited still, but general feedback is pricing to be a little lower than Thursday which closed at 82.17.
