The publication has many practical uses including commodity investment analysis, risk management, corporate planning, and budgeting. The commodities covered have been selected for their global appeal and traded on prominent futures markets such as the London Metal Exchange (LME), New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and InterContinental Exchange (ICE). For example, the aluminium forecasts below are based on LME cash prices for high-grade aluminium of at least 99.7% purity.
The table above shows a portion of aluminium price forecasts taken from the November 2016 issue of Energy & Metals Consensus Forecasts. A complete sample issue of the publication containing more recent forecasts, including Consensus Forecasts™ for Copper, Lead, Nickel, Tin and Zinc, as well as ferrous and precious metals, can be downloaded in PDF format via the link below.
