Barclays’ exit from energy trading stirs concerns over liquidity

British bank Barclays (LON:BARC) Plchas joined the list of top banks to exit energy trading, an exodus that analysts say raises concern among oil producers that falling liquidity means they cannot use derivatives for their basic function: to hedge risk by locking in future prices.

Wall Street firms have scaled back in commodity markets since the 2008 financial crisis from owning physical assets or taking positions in the market in the face of regulatory scrutiny. The banks were big players in the market for derivatives years into the future.

The departure of Barclays exacerbates the scarcity of counterparties for trade when producers are trying to hedge their production for 2018 and beyond, potentially raising the cost to lock in that output.

That increase could force cash-strapped producers to forgo protection altogether, putting them at risk if the market takes another leg down.

Some producers seek to lock in future profits and fund expansion through selling as much as 80% of production years into the future.

A bunch of co-founders are excited — there’s no reason for them not to be. Team Indus — their startup — is now officially eligible to be the first team from India to send a spacecraft to the moon. Team Indus, India’s only entry for Google Lunar XPRIZE, last week signed a verified commercial launch contract with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for its mission. Soft landing on the moon has been done by only three countries so far — the US, Russia and China. Funded with USD 15 million, Team Indus has designed a spacecraft and has announced a launch window for the same.

The journey will start on December 28, 2017. The polar satellite launch vehicle will inject a spacecraft into an orbit 880 km x 70,000 km around the earth. The spacecraft will then undertake a 21-day journey to soft land in Mare Imbrium, a region in north-western hemisphere of the moon.
