Falling prices

Deregulated electricity prices, for future delivery, have been falling systemically in Brazil. In 1 year the drop was 20%!

The explanation is simple. National consumption of electricity has been practically unchanged for 1 year. Demand is therefore "parked". The supply side, which in Brazil depends primarily on hydroelectric reservoirs, is very well, thank you!!!!

Improved supply compared to the past, and constant demand results in falling prices. Plain and simple!

The recommendation is to take advantage of the situation and close good contracts NOW.
