Methodology
IOSCO compliant robust guidelines and custom procedures for price assessment
Steel Mint
SteelMint’s credible prices serve as a benchmark for manufacturers, buyers and traders in the steel industry to settle contracts or to understand the market cost of physical supply of commodities. We have created a robust methodology to ensure the accurate assessment of commodity prices that are governed by SteelMint’s standards of compliance with the public and our stakeholders.
The listed prices are just the tip of the iceberg that’s visible to everyone. The rationale applied by analysts who work behind the scenes is based on a robust market-appropriate methodology, derived from research and data analysis, to assess prices in varied markets.SteelMint seeks to reflect the way markets are traded, rather than impose any one view on the markets — including its own.
