Since 1939, professional traders, commercial hedgers, portfolio managers, and speculators around the world have come to rely on The CRB Commodity Yearbook to help them navigate the uncertainties of the commodity markets.
The single most comprehensive source of commodity and futures market information available, the Yearbook is the book of record of the Commodity Research Bureau, which is, in turn, the organization of record for the commodity industry itself. Its sources–reports from governments, private industries, and trade and industrial associations–are authoritative, and its historical scope is second to none.
Breadth and depth of information make the Yearbook indispensable for identifying changing trends in supply and demand and for projecting important price movements. The 2004 edition provides crucial information on more than 100 domestic and international commodities–from aluminum to gold to zinc–and includes seasonal patterns and historical data from the past ten years as well as current (as of the last three months) pricing and trading patterns on a monthly and annual basis.
The information is formatted to make researching a particular commodity as convenient as possible. Each commodity is introduced by a brief article that describes its salient features, pricing trends in recent years, and factors–be they droughts, wars, diseases, or politics–that have influenced prices in the past, and may do so in the future. The data itself is presented in over 900 tables, graphs, and price charts that are clear and easy to read. As an added bonus to this year’s edition, a companion CD-ROM has been included to provide readers with valuable commodity information in an easy-to-use electronic format.
Also featured are major articles on key markets and important issues by prominent professionals in the commodity industry that have been commissioned exclusively for the Yearbook.
For its wealth of information and the authority of its sources, The CRB Commodity Yearbook 2004 stands alone as a guide to intelligent trading in commodities and futures.About the Author:
