Both of these packs include the Market Pack information. They also show the round-by-round data, building online as the GDT Event unfolds. The only difference is the Analyst Pack has a 10-minute delay, while the Trader Pack is in real time.

  • Event status

    Keep track of the event with clear notification of when prices are announced, bidding is in progress, and the results are being calculated.

  • Filtering and personalisation

    Use easy check-box filters to display only the product groups and contract period data you want to focus on.

  • View average price or % price difference

    With a single click, you can change what the graphs and contract period data tables show. Choose the average announced price for a round (across all products in the product group), or the percentage difference between the announced price for a round and the winning price for the same products from the previous GDT Event. Mouse-over or touch here to see more on these calculations.

  • Event rounds

    In each round, buyers have five minutes to place their bids. This is followed by another five minutes in which the trading manager reviews the results and publishes information for the next round. The trading manager can extend the times (if bidders need help) or reduce them if only a few products are still being bid on.

  • Demand/Supply Ratio

    The Demand/Supply Ratio indicates the strength of bidding demand relative to sellers’ offer quantities. You will see this aggregated across all contract periods and products for the GDT Event and for each product group. It’s rounded to the nearest 0.5 and shown in red when 2.0 or above, green if less than 2.0, and blue if it’s unchanged (-) or there are fewer than 10 bidders (n.a.).

  • View/hide contract period details

    For each product group, you can quickly view or hide a table showing the round-by-round Demand/Supply Ratio and, depending on what you’ve chosen to display, the average price or % price difference per contract period.

  • See almost the same data as the bidders

    The Analyst Pack and Trader Pack generally provide the same data, or an aggregated equivalent of the data, that is available to the GDT Event participants (bidders). Mouse-over or touch here to learn more.

Event status
Filtering and personalisation

The average announced prices and percentage price differences shown are both quantity-weighted averages across all products within the relevant product group and contract period. The quantity applied is the smaller of the MT quantity of bids accepted on the product and the product’s maximum supply quantity. This method takes account of the maximum quantity of each product available to be sold.

The round-by-round demand/supply ratios are shown the same for the GDT Insight and GDT Event (bidder) platforms. Round-by-round announced prices in GDT Insight are product group/contract period averages whereas bidders view the announced price for each individual offering.

GDT Insight packs provide additional after-the-event information on sold quantities and regional distributions which is not provided to bidders through the GDT Event platform. The only additional information GDT Event participants receive is the pre-event data on each seller’s starting prices, offer quantities and forecasts. Anti-trust laws limit the ability for certain pre-event and other data to be shared with people who are not GDT Event participants.
