CASE

For an independent trading company such as Priogen, understanding how certain events
influence supply and demand of electricity is vital in forecasting the price accurately. During
this case, the students will first take the role of a Priogen research team and determine how
the power price in a specific market will likely move as a result of certain events. After that, it
is up to the trading desks to implement this knowledge. In the role of a Priogen trading desk
the students will trade intraday power. Intraday power is a highly volatile product, so you
should see plenty of price movement! The students will be responsible for making the correct
trading decisions, managing their risk, and ensuring that their position is back to zero before
the market closes.
