Price volatility on Monday 17th May 2021 … as expected (part 1?)

It’s only just started, but here’s the second spike (at 17:40) captured in a snapshot from NEMwatch v10:

Here’s the first two spikes (at 17:00 and 17:40) as captured in SMS alerts which are available in both NEMwatch v10 (Platinum Model) and in ez2view:

As I hit ‘publish’ prices have also been up for 17:50 and 17:55 (in NSW, VIC and SA).

A very short article today (my shortest ever?), but this will serve as a contemporaneous record that might be referred back to later (in part 2 and so on).
