Additional information

  • GDT events are held on the first and third Tuesday of the month
  • Six contract periods are made available, which correspond to future delivery periods
  • The % change refers to the change in GDT price indices between auctions, not changes in the average weighted price. This gives a more accurate reflection of price movements than using simple weighted average prices because it takes into account changes in available volumes
  • Average prices reflect the weighted average winning price in US dollars per tonne
  • Quantity sold is the total tonnage sold in a trading event across all products, contract periods, and sellers
  • n.a. indicates no quantity was offered or sold in either the current event and/or in the prior two events. It may also mean the prices published for individual products within a group were insufficient for the Price Index to be calculated
