Chapters 3 and 4 cover the type of modeling principles and skills demanded by the complexities of the energy markets. ● Chapters 5 and 6 describe how to model the underlying price behavior of the spot and forward price markets. The behavioral characteristics of these markets act both as an end to themselves and as valuable inputs for the quantitative analysis covered in the remaining chapters. These chapters were extensively expanded to include some new ideas, such as on distribution analysis, and updated with new market data.

For example, electricity spot prices tend to exhibit extremely volatile day-to-day price returns (see Figure 3-3). 75 years: roughly 66% of the prices should be in the range between $0 and (very roughly) $450. Yet, over this period of time, the values of the spot prices tend to be mostly within a rather narrow range, roughly between $40 and $75 Modeling Principles and Market Behavior F I G U R E 43 3-1 NYMEX WTI Rolling Futures’ Historical Volatility: A 1997 Sample (see Figure 3-4). This is an important reality check, which, if not honored within our assumptions, might cause electricity options to be priced unrealistically high.

Similarly, if we make the fundamental assumption that electricity prices are related to coal and natural gas prices, we can arrive at a solution for electricity prices by assuming that we can create a risk-free portfolio consisting of electricity, coal, and natural gas. On the other hand, we may assume that electricity prices tend to revert to equilibrium price levels, which are determined by supply-and-demand conditions. In these cases, our different fundamental assumptions would possibly lead us to very different solutions.
