A Unique and Effective Methodology

The price forecasts are delivered by a team of leading commodity analysts using a proprietary combination of fundamental, statistical and technical analysis. All our forecasting results are transparent. We show a record of all our price forecasts and hedging recommendations so you can compare them to reality. No other provider does this.


Fully Integrated Procurement & Risk Tool

  • Alerts for changes to forecasts and hedging recommendations

  • Commentaries explaining fundamental and technical analysis

  • Dashboards that include forecast and hedging recommendations

  • API enabled to optimise integration

  • Commodity Forecasting advice, price forecast webinars & price forecast videos help to reduce exposure to price risk

Macro Economic Forecasts

Understand key procurement performance indicators. Our Macro Economic Forecasts are distinct from other commodity analysis because they use a range of indicators, including GDP and CPI, from key regions to forecast the global economy, demonstrating the strong relationship between global manufacturing activity and commodity price movements.


Hedging: Act Decisively

  • Avoid: Prices at the top or a confirmed downtrend means hedging is not recommended

  • Plan: Anticipated uptrend. Need to plan for a future recommendation to hedge

  • Partial: Recommendation to hedge only part of the total volume due to possible “fake signals”

  • Full: A confirmed buy signal validating an uptrend suggests the need to hedge

Cost Model Forecasts
