In our ongoing efforts to promote transparency in Gas and Power pricing, we now offer Digital Market access to our counterparties through our web portal. Providing access to live prices and in-depth access to European Gas and Power Markets, this tool is ideal for those looking to trade with SEFE Marketing & Trading while taking advantage of intraday market opportunities in a volatile market environment.
Find out more about the benefits of our Digital Market access portal, as well as the set-up process, in our guide below.
The benefits of Digital Market access
Our portal aims to digitalize Gas and Power trading, promoting greater transparency and control for the end user. The portal gives access to live prices from European Markets which traders can use to trade with SEFE Marketing & Trading based on authorised products that we have set-up for trading via EFET Agreements.
Some of the many benefits energy players can garner from the tool are:
Access to real-time market prices, across Europe, promotes total transparency, lending you greater control over your energy trading strategy. Uses pricing access for physical Gas and Power markets across all European Markets, for total clarity and better-informed decision-making.
The advantage of intraday market movements
Intraday market visibility is one of the biggest advantages of our system, allowing greater insight into emerging volatility across UK and European energy markets. This additional level of market insight provides a sound foundation for energy strategizing, and mitigates some of the risks of trading in volatile markets.
Complete market visibility from Within Day to Long-Term tenors
Our tool facilitates granular market analysis over a broad timeframe, supporting both Within Day and Long-Term tenor periods. The ability to track Gas and Power market movement with real-time pricing makes for simpler and more timely trading decisions, as well as an overview of your counterparties’ market activities – for a more transparent trading environment.

The benefits of the system are clear, but how can you put the system to use for your own trading purposes, and what features are included?
