Well, this started well, but I sold out of this last week for a $100 loss, or so. While I like the narrative, I just don't understand the instrument enough. Back to the school hall for me, for now.

In that supposedly new green age, how could carbon price be so low when the use of fossil fuel is going higher and higher especially in the EU ..i would expect all these coal burning power stations buying a lot of carbon credit

That is my theory on this. I just can't see how we get anywhere near net zero without a lot of carbon offsetting. The instrument this mimics has done extremely well longer term, this might be a lull.

Looks good for a break up doesn't it.

Well, it broke up @frugal.rock , but has come back down to a bit of support.

It's had 4 months to give us some idea about how it's going to go and react to the general market. Still not sure, and I still have got no idea how the underlying instrument it tracks really works. But, so far, it's going up...

Just a thought: could this be actually a pure narrative stock:
Talk ev,green world and it goes up then media focus eases and it goes down
