An introduction to Platts Market On Close process in European ethanol

With Simon Thorne and Tim Worledge

December 18, 2015 13:41:00 EST (6:54)

Platts' Simon Thorne and Tim Worledge briefly explain the workings of the Platts Market On Close (MOC) assessment process -- at the heart of Platts' robust ethanol methodology -- wherein the industry itself can remove any ambiguity and bring transparency and focus to price.

 

The MOC approach to assessing operates on the principle that the market is the best advocate of price, and is a structured, highly transparent process in which bids, offers and transactions are submitted by participants to the market and published in real-time until the market close.

 

Following the close, Platts editors examine the data gathered through the day, conduct their analysis and develop price assessments that reflect an end-of-day value.

 

Simon and Tim also explain the Platts Editorial Window (eWindow), an online communications tool that enables users to electronically enter, and immediately view, bids, offers and transaction data.
