Advantages of the ARGUS GOO price assessments

Markets for GOOs are extremely opaque, with liquidity spread across a variety of trading venues.

Argus captures best bids and offers across a range of trading platforms on a daily basis, which, combined with confirmed deals done, allows for robust and fair daily assessments. Argus provides a weekly commentary on price trends for a wider range of GOO products and market developments, and publishes specifications of confirmed deals.
