PRICING NOTICE: Standardization of Fastmarkets’ price names
Published: Friday, 21 June 2019
Fastmarkets has standardized the names of our metals and minerals prices across our product suite for ease of use and greater transparency.
The aim of this exercise is to make it
as easy as possible for our licensed users to identify and use
our pricing data.
As of two weeks from the date of this notice, all Fastmarkets
price names will follow this structure, where possible:
commodity + product/grade + incoterm + location + currency +
unit of measure.
