Commodity Price Database

Our database presents volume-weighted averages of transaction prices effectively practiced in the markets. As such, the prices presented in Commodity Price Database:

  • Are not necessarily indicative of specific contract prices or spot transactions/bids (unless otherwise specified).
  • Do not reflect the price of any specific grade, rather an average price of all grades traded in the period reported, under all types of transaction (contract and spot)

As a subscriber, you will have access to monthly average prices for bulk quantities of commodities, as defined by official trade statistics issued by the respective countries. So while Intratec price data can be a useful guide in a number of situations, when used alone it may not capture specific and/or sharp price movements in periods of high price volatility. Therefore, we discourage using the monthly price data from Commodity Price Database as a reference of real-time prices of commodities.
