The only service you will ever need
With comprehensive coverage of every major metal grade, in every major
market, you won’t need another service. Ever.
For information to be included in an index’s calculation, it must meet specific criteria detailed in our methodology.
This includes an industry specification for each material, a minimum deal size, delivery period, payment period and other factors that establish a basis for each index.
Examples of data collected:
Names of counterparties
Spread values between materials
Spread values between locations
Other transactions heard across the market
Any other trade relevant data
Davis analysts are given rigorous training to analyze the data gathered and received.
Analysts are taught to determine whether the data qualifies for use in an index or requires more inquiry.
For qualified data, analysts then apply index methodology to determine whether each data point is relevant to the index and should be utilized in the final calculation of that index.
Every index is reviewed and evaluated by a manager prior to its publication. Market commentaries that accompany industry benchmarks include rationales that explain the index’s movement.
Davis Index’s proprietary indexes and price benchmarks
are used by a complete cross-section of the industry.
