Energy and Metals Consensus Forecasts

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 COMEX) and InterContinental Exchange (ICE).

Forecast Coverage for Silver

The precious metal's ductile and malleable characteristics make it perfect for use in jewellery and silverware, while it is often essential in industry and electrical components due to its qualities as a conductor of electricity. Silver is an asset commonly used to diversify financial portfolios and acts as a store of wealth, but to a lesser extent than gold. The silver forecasts featured in our publication are based on:
  • London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Spot fix (US$/troy oz).
