The transaction component of MAGI of 21.5170 €/MWh was calculated as the weighted average of 91 transactions representing 4,320 MW of June gas.
At VTP, 108 reported deals representing a record 4,339 MW of June gas produced a transaction based index (IMST) of 20.8895 €/MWh. The 70/30 weighting of the transaction and quotation indices of 20.8864 €/MWh was 0.61 €/MWh lower than the MAGI index.
