Bankers, hedgers and portfolio players
The market has lost many of the speculative and financial players and trading arms have been downsized. Is there more liquidity in the make-up of the European gas trading landscape than in the market itself? What is the current lie of the land with regard to market participants and how can we expect this to change over the coming years?

- Where have all the banks gone? Are we seeing a great market exit from the traditional financial powerhouses?
- The new kids on the block? Is now the time of the hedge fund and algorithmic traders in gas and power markets?
- The age-old liquidity question: Is there enough and where will it come from?
