COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to how monthly PIX Indices are databased in Fastmarkets RISI portal
BEDFORD, MA, Mar. 22, 2019 (PPI Global) – To streamline how prices appear across various products and publications, Fastmarkets RISI intends to change the way it displays monthly PIX Indices in the Intelligence Center and the way data downloads are presented.
Specifically, Fastmarkets RISI is proposing the following:
Monthly PIX price series, such as the timber and biomass prices and German Recovered Paper are currently displayed in the RISI portal as monthly prices. Going forward, we intend to display these series using the date of publication, which is how they appear on the FOEX website.
This change would only affect monthly price series, such as the timber and biomass prices and German RCP. There would be no change to how we display the weekly PIX indices.
The change in practice would take effect from May 1, 2019.
