Many members benefit from receiving market information via direct feeds to their own systems from the Baltic. Although traditionally this was made available to members on request, the Baltic’s full FTP service provides a secure facility that allows any member’s system, to automatically extract daily physical and forward market information at the point of publication. This is often used for risk management and other internal programs where automatically reformatted yet secure market data, can be tailored to the user’s format and needs. Restricted to members only, an FTP feed can be purchased from the Baltic for £2,000.00 p.a. plus a one-off setup fee of £595.
For those operating systems requiring Baltic Forward Assessment prices in a MS Excel format, a file with the FFA curves is also available to members at £4,000 p.a. which is reduced to £2,000.00 for those also subscribing to the FTP feed. This includes delivery to one nominated inbox location with further locations added at a cost of £100 per extra user. Although this feed doesn’t include physical market information, it provides the flexibility and Excel analytical tools that many members require, without needing personalised in-house software themselves or to use as a cross-check to contrast forward rates against their trading activities.
