Washington, DC & Boulder, Colorado,, April 6, 2010
Nodal Exchange, the first exchange dedicated to offering locational (nodal) futures contracts and related services to participants in the organized North American electric power markets, and Yes Energy, a leading provider of graphical decision support systems for power trading in nodal markets, announced today that Yes Energy has launched a new tool, Nodal View™, specifically designed for participants on Nodal Exchange.
Yes Energy Nodal View gives Nodal Exchange participants a daily, graphical picture of market activity, price trends, and contract expiries for every Nodal Exchange contract in ISO‐NE, NYISO, PJM, and MISO. Markets can be viewed independently or simultaneously, and traders can quickly move from nodal to spread analyses. Nodal View also merges Nodal Exchange and ISO data to allow traders to easily see how the markets are moving relative to each other.
“Using Nodal View our customers can easily pinpoint market opportunities to best leverage the financially settled, standardized futures contracts we offer on Nodal Exchange,” said Paul Cusenza, Chief Executive Officer. “We are very pleased that leading technology companies, like Yes Energy, continue to provide tools that add value to our participants trading on Nodal Exchange.”
“Nodal Exchange expands the opportunities for power traders to manage congestion risk and capitalize on forward positions in nodal markets”, said Michael McNair, CEO of Yes Energy. “We are confident that the historical analyses in Nodal View will help optimize those opportunities. Nodal View will also provide a seamless upgrade path to the full Power Signals™ product for real‐time tracking of virtuals, FTRs, spreads, constraints, outages, weather, and other drivers of nodal market trends.”
