Fastmarkets published average prices
Fastmarkets publishes weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly averages based on the underlying actual assessments. For certain Cobalt prices there are also Weighted Average of Trades (MB-CO-0004 and MB-CO-0005). The averages are published on the first day of the next average period for the previous average, e.g., for a monthly average published on 1st June it will display the May monthly average.
Fastmarkets Averages methodology:
Fastmarkets averages are a simple average calculation. Fastmarkets’ simple monthly averages are calculated by dividing the sum of all price quotations within a month by the number of quotations published during the calendar month. For assessments, Fastmarkets derives both the monthly average high price and the monthly average low price using this method. For indices, a single monthly average price point is calculated.
The following assessments are published on a simple average methodology:
· All base metals, including calculated prices
· All nonferrous scrap, including calculated prices
· All steel
· Ferrous scrap, including regional domestic assessments – such as Chicago, Detroit, etc. – and export yard prices, the export indices, Mexican scrap prices and the Midwest scrap indices
Fastmarkets averages for calculated composite prices for ferrous scrap are the exception to the above. These are calculated using a rolling average methodology by dividing the sum of the daily price quotations – including prices republished on non-assessment days – by the number of quotations published during the calendar month.
In a rolling-average scenario, prices are published daily, regardless of how frequently they are updated. Daily price quotations are rolled over on working days until the following price change, excluding holidays and weekends. No pricing inputs are published on holidays or weekends.
Effective March 1st 2023, Fastmarkets made a change to the calculation of mid-prices for published averages.
To align with market convention, Fastmarkets will change the calculation of averages to represent the monthly average of the midpoint of each pricing session during the month.
Currently, the average function, when used for assessments, calculates the midpoint of the monthly average high assessment and monthly average low assessment.
Although the new average calculation may result in a difference of +/- 0.01 when calculating averages to two decimal places, it will typically be no higher or lower. No averages will be retrospectively changed.
You can read more about this change here – https://www.fastmarkets.com/insights/conclusion-of-open-consultation-on-calculation-of-averages-on-the-fastmarkets-platform
You can find out more about how to find and display Fastmarkets published averages here
