Argus aims to produce reliable, representative price assessments of commodity market values, free from distortion and representative of fair market values. Argus forward curves are assessments of market value for forward contracts and financial swaps contracts at predetermined time periods such as months and calendar years. Forward curve prices are not forecasts of future values but instead are assessments of the price of delivery of a commodity at a future date if transacted today.
