Over the last few years, events such as conflicts in the Middle East, the nuclear disaster in Japan and the increased financialisation of energy derivatives markets, have resulted in high uncertainty and speculation in energy prices and the financial markets.

We invite authors to submit high-quality research papers on all aspects of energy prices modelling and their links with the financial markets.

The focus of this special issue is on empirical research; however, theoretical papers will also be considered.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Portfolio construction
  • Energy price shocks and stock markets
  • Energy pricing models
  • Speculation in energy prices
  • Energy derivatives
  • Forecasting energy markets
