LONDON, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Keeping track of what is happening in individual commodities, and understanding what any developments mean to the industry is a complicated process. It is particularly complex for commodities that are little-understood. For commodities that are featured more frequently in the media, the information is there to be found but digesting it into actionable information is a time-consuming process.
In response to an obvious need, Roskill Information Services is launching a new series of quarterly briefings. We will be starting this service with a selection of steel alloy metals and minor metals, but we will add to this list very soon, including a range of industrial minerals which are even more opaque than minor metals.
The first steel alloy metals and minor metals being covered are:
Roskill's highly experienced analysts do not just look at what is happening in the market, we look at the underlying mechanisms and the implications for industry players. Our quarterly briefings have been designed to provide decision-makers with the hard data they need and, more importantly, an analysis of what that these insights mean to the market.
The format in each quarterly update will be the same.
- A general overview of what has happened to markets/companies during the last quarter
- The most-recent available statistics for supply, demand and prices
- A roadmap, highlighting the major events and unknowns to look out for in the coming year
- An outlook detailing not only baseline prices, but upside and downside risks, and volatility
These are the basic things you need to have but like many organisations probably do not have the resources or time to handle. Roskill will take it even further and look at the economic, corporate and political factors influencing, what has happened and what will happen.
Roskill's quarterly outlooks contain probabilistic outlooks that take into account the risk factors facing the market - the outcome of which remains unknown. Although assumptions may be made about the likely outcome of these risk factors, each of these uncertainties contributes to decreased confidence in a forecast. Roskill's heatmaps show not only the most likely direction of prices, but illustrate the volatility facing the market. Roskill's quarterly reviews include both a baseline price outlook, as well as a probabilistic outlook in the form of a heatmap.
