How does it work?

MetalSignals™ aggregates the production and storage data for each location to generate machine-learning based signals that are predictive of exchange metal price and inventory direction 1, 2, and 3 months out, as well as price direction for hundreds of metals-related equites, indices, currencies/FX, and interest rates.

It has global coverage across six continents and includes major countries such as China, Chile, Russia, USA, Australia, and more.

The MetalSignals™ web app displays customizable charts and analytics for every location, country, and metal type along with weekly momentum indicators based on changes in satellite supply relative to recent history.
