Trading on the day-ahead market takes place on the UEEX trading platform by trading short-term standardized products on the UEEX. All participants who have been accredited to participate in the UEEX short-term natural gas market can take part in the day-ahead market trading sessions.
The trading and clearing session schedule is the same for all short-term products on the UEEX. These are 4 trading sessions during the day: from 10:00-13:00, 15:00-17:30, 19:30-22:30, 0:00-5:30. The schedule and terms are HERE.
"The launch of Day-ahead trading complements the range of UEEX exchange instruments in the natural gas market. Using this tool, market participants can additionally plan the sale of the resource in the short-term market, which will significantly improve the liquidity of participants portfolio. We listen to market participants and provide quality support at all stages of the trading process. The introduction of new products at the UEEX contributes to the active development of the gas market of Ukraine ", - says Inna Shcherbyna, Deputy Chairman of the Exchange Committee
