Watch how a Trading Event takes place
To keep you informed through out the event, you will be notified when prices are announced, bidding is in progress, and when the results are being calculated.
Filtering allows you to personalise the data tables to display only those product groups and contract periods of interest to you.
The average announced price is the average of the prices announced by the Trading Manager at which bidders may submit MT bids during the bidding round. The percentage price difference compares the announced prices against the published winning prices from the previous Trading Event.
A standard event round comprises a 5 minute bidding round during which bidders place their bids, followed by a 5 minute ‘end of round’ period during which the Trading Manager reviews the results and publishes information for the next round.
The Demand/Supply Ratio indicates the strength of bidding demand relative to sellers’ offer quantities. You will see this for each product group and as an overall measure across all products.
The table view displays the product group Demand/Supply Ratio and average price per contract period per round, while the graph view will give you a visual representation of demand and its comparison against the previous event.
The average announced price is the average of the announced prices across all products within the product group. The average is a quantity-weighted average where the quantity is the smaller of the MT quantity of bids accepted on the product and the product’s maximum supply quantity. This method takes account of the maximum quantity of each product available to be sold.
The chart shows the current trading event’s price line in red when the Demand/Supply Ratio is 2.0 or above, green when the Demand/Supply Ratio is less than 2.0, and blue when Demand/Supply Ratio is “-“ or “n.a.”.
The previous event’s price line is shown in grey.
The percentage price difference compares the announced prices in effect for the relevant bidding round against the published winning prices for the same products from the previous Trading Event. The reported measure is the weighted-average percentage difference across all products within the relevant product group and contract period. It is a quantity-weighted average where the quantity is the smaller of the MT quantity of bids accepted on the product and the product’s maximum supply quantity. This method takes account of the maximum quantity of each product available to be sold.
The chart shows the current Trading Event’s price line in red when the Demand/Supply Ratio is 2.0 or above, green when the Demand/Supply Ratio is less than 2.0, and blue when Demand/Supply Ratio is “-“ or “n.a.”.
The previous event’s percentage price differences are shown in grey.
The Trading Manager has discretion to extend round duration (if a number of bidders are seeking assistance), or reduce round duration near the end of a Trading Event when only a small number of products are being bid on.
The Overall Demand/Supply Ratio is aggregated across all products offered in the Trading Event, and is updated after each round to show how demand responded as announced prices increased round-by-round.
The ratio is rounded to the nearest 0.5. For example, a ratio of 2.0 indicates that demand was between 1.75 to 2.25 times larger than the available supply.
When all announced prices are unchanged from the previous round, the ratio will display as “-“. The ratio will also displays as “n.a.” if there are fewer than 10 bidders.
Colour coding enables a quick-view assessment. Ratios at 2.0 and above are in red, ratios below 2.0 are green, and “n.a.” and “-“ are shown in blue.
This Demand/Supply Ratio is aggregated across contract periods and products offered in this product group, and is updated after each round to show how demand responded as announced prices increased round-by-round.
