The attached matlab code simulates future coupled spot and forward curves based on the Carlos Blanco and Michael Pierce model published in Energy Risk, May 2012; the forward curve simulator is based on the Clewlow and Strickland model detailed in  and the submission in June 2013. The aim of the code is to simulate several commodity markets of spot and forward simulations.
2. Running the code
can be run to show how to the model is initialised that will output several figures highlighting simulations and validation.
The main engine determining the simulated spot and forward curves:
