The first-of-its-kind assessment will enhance transparency for this formula that has grown increasingly popular among market players recently due to high levels of volatility.
It will also provide a more complete as well as comprehensive view of new and emerging trade dynamics in the Asian spot PX market. The new quote will provide a reliable and up-to-date price marker for buyers, traders as well as makers.
