“One of the biggest drivers in the Australian energy markets is what the temperature in the four largest cities is going to be today and tomorrow.
“Having experienced meteorologists review both the forecast and the science behind it can be very powerful for traders. When we see for example an outlier and others have not interpreted the data the way we have, we are able to provide the synoptic rationale for our forecast and how it has informed our trading guidance.”
