### Caption Text Changing Rows

I am having a problem using captions with Tables. My caption seems to have a weird border so it creates a new line using only one or two words when trying to caption a table. I would like the caption to be on one line under the table.
Here is the code I am using and a picture of the problem. Any help is much appreciated on how to make my borders for the caption run the full length of the table.

\begin{table}[H]
\parbox{.2\linewidth}{
\centering
\label{dt1}
\begin{tabular}[b]{ccc}
&Upward Balancing &Downward Balancing\\
\hline
Surplus imbalance &Elspot price & (BM-) \\
Deficit imbalance &(BM+) & Elspot price \\

\hline
\end{tabular}
\subcaptionbox{Imbalance Prices for Producers}
}
\end{table}

Hi Tim,

welcome to the forum!

This seems to math the parbox with 0.2 line length. Remove that \parbox and its closing brace to see the change.

0.2 of the line width doesn't fit to the table width anyway.

By the way, always use \label directly after a caption.
