Volatility in commodity prices creates opportunities, along with risks
If you are involved in building commodity trading or hedging strategies, then understanding the direction of prices is crucial to your success. Whether you are a quant strategist, data scientist or a trader, forecasting prices is the goal. But this is impossible to do with any degree of accuracy. So financial institutions, trading houses and physical buyers and sellers around the world are using the Argus Data Science Studio to reveal the uncertainties and volatility associated with the commodity prices they depend upon.
How can the Argus Data Science Studio help you?
- Identify market risks that you were previously unaware of.
- Build a more complete view by incorporating market fundamentals and pricing insight into your decision-making.
- Gain key insights on possible future energy prices and estimate volatility and the balance of risk.
- By having more robust capabilities for scenario analysis and stress testing your portfolios, you can better handle extreme market events that are occurring more frequently in the current economic environment.
- Generate new trading ideas through the directional and volatility signals produced.
- We offer a flexible platform for developing and expanding your data science capabilities, that would otherwise cost you millions of dollars and many years to develop internally.
The Argus Data Science Studio is based on three key pillars
Scenario analysisTest your own or historic scenarios to understand what might happen to the forecast under different assumptions, to help you build the most robust trading and hedging strategies.
Custom machine learning modelsIncorporate your own market expertise and intuition by adjusting the model structure, such as the relationship type between drivers and the model, what kind of distribution is used, and any external constraints that are unique to your business. Your view of the market is independent to you, so your models need to reflect this.
Use of client owned dataAdd your own data to the model, alongside any proprietary Argus data. Any datasets, from any sources, can be added to the studio, to create a custom-made model unique to your business.
