Brattle Senior Consultant Shaun Ledgerwood to Present at EUCI Conference on Market Manipulation in FTR Markets

Brattle senior consultant Shaun Ledgerwood will give a presentation on market manipulation at the upcoming EUCI Financial Transmission Rights conference, taking place July 25-26, 2011 in Houston, TX. The use of financial transmission rights (FTRs) to facilitate competitive open transmission access has become more widespread in recent years. The conference will discuss new regulatory requirements affecting FTR markets and what is expected for the future as new products and technologies become available. Dr. Ledgerwood, an expert on issues surrounding market competitiveness, will be presenting on market manipulation in FTR markets. He will explain how market manipulation, a poorly understood phenomenon which involves trading to intentionally incur losses, impacts FTR holders and what market participants should be aware of moving forward.
