Hong Kong, February 07, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Now one-stop source for outright physical assessments and commodities futures differentials
Asian FTG Market Eye a commodity researcher specialist provider of a full range of commodities analysis releases sugar and bio-fuels information and analytics and a unit of Asian FTG, today announced the expansion of its suite of price references for the global sugar market to include nearly a dozen outright price assessments for raw and white sugar exported from Brazil, Thailand and the European Union.
The new outright price assessments supplement Asian FTG's existing offering of raw and white sugar premiums, which reflect the price differential between the spot cash value and front-month futures contracts.
“By offering the sugar industry a choice of reference, we're making it easier for them to address various workflow needs with a single, independent source of both outright price assessments and futures differentials,” said Jonathan Singer, founder of Asian FTG Market Eye and now Global Director for Agriculture at Asian FTG.
The new offering includes four new outright price assessments for raw sugar and seven new outright price assessments for white sugar.
Raw Sugar - there are two new price assessments reflecting raw sugar loaded free on board (FOB) from Thailand ports, each valuing a different quality grade of sugar. There are also assessments for raw granulated sugar from Brazil, loaded FOB from both southern and northern ports. The assessments capture parcel sizes ranging from 12,000 to 50,000 metric tons and will be quoted in U.S. cents per pound.
White Sugar - the new outright assessments for white sugar include values for both break bulk and containerized cargoes for two grades of Brazil white sugar and one grade of Thailand white sugar, and containerized cargoes for one grade of European Union white sugar.
