TTF Edges Higher Ahead of Expected Drop in Temperatures


TTF front month has recovered from a low of 43.15€/MWh yesterday supported by the risk of higher demand due to colder weather into next week. The upside risk is offsetting the easing supply risks from the Middle East and Egypt LNG while near term supplies remain healthy.
