Carbon Emissions ECX EUA – ICE Facts

The Carbon Emissions ECX EUA – ICE is mannaged by the European Climate Exchang (ECX). The trading of carbon futures began in 2005 after the United Nations created a policy called the Kyoto Protocol which aimed to reduce the amount of global carbon emissions. While the policy had some impact on carbon emissions, it is unclear if it was effective.

Carbon futures work by purchasing credits which enable companies to produce a specific amount of carbon dioxide. The goal of carbon credits are to slowly reduce global carbon emissions.

Data and Format Details

Portara has extensive formatting rules. Every aspect of your ascii, csv, text data can be custom-tailored to suit your needs.

You can purchase historical futures data as individual contracts or in a continuous form. Continuous data can be formatted into back-adjusted, forward-adjusted, ratio adjusted and zero adjusted series. Portara can create bespoke rules for each commodity based on volume, open interest, tick size and calendar date variations. We control delivery month combinations, timezone settings and timestamps that follow exchange or local time globally for any location.

Portara’s standard daily data is made up of five data points – open, high, low, lastprice and settle. Simply choose to have the daily close based on the last price or the settle depending on whether you wish follow extended sessions or just the day session.

Portara’s intraday data is supplied as default in 1-minute bar. You may also choose other bar granularities such as 2 minute bar, 3 minute bar, 5 minute bar, 10 minute bar, 15 minute bar, 30 minute bar, hourly bar etc. You can also have us extract daily data from the intraday database; here, you would choose the session (even if you need to cross midnight) and we can supply the custom daily data between the session markers.

Portara provides tick data in ‘Trades Only’ form or as ‘Level 1’ data, which includes the bids and asks. See the sample data for our default format which is timestamp (millisecond), price, tradevolume, tradeflags (i.e. bid, ask, trade, settle). Of course you can choose to have custom formats here too. Remember to look at the file size of trades only compared to level 1 as they can vary by factors of 100 fold. If you have questions simply email us and one of our technicians will guide you.


All of our historical data is updated on a daily basis four times per day at the end of the Asian, European, Early US and Globex session. Portara’s enterprise software solution provides timely updates to your data, along with compression, roll and custom formatting features on CQG deep history databases.
