ESMA Updates MiFID II Transitional Transparency Calculations for Electricity Derivatives


On January 22, the European Securities and Markets Authority (“ESMA“) published an updated version of its transitional transparency calculations (“TTC“) required under the MiFID II Directive (2014/65/EU) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (600/2014) (“MiFIR“).

The update relates to the TTC for commodity derivatives and affects only electricity derivatives.

Further information is contained in section E10 of ESMA’s frequently asked questions (“FAQ“) (ESMA50-164-677) on the TTC, which explains why the last TTC results for commodity derivatives, published on December 6, 2017, have been modified.

The transparency calculations can be found here and the FAQs, which were published on ESMA’s website, can be found here.
