COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to US Newsprint Coverage - Consultation

In view of changes on the US newsprint market, Fastmarkets FOEX proposes a number of updates to its PIX US Newsprint indices.

1. Since the US newsprint market has shifted towards lighter basis weights, Fastmarkets FOEX proposes to discontinue price assessments for PIX US Newsprint (30 lb/48.8 g). We would continue to publish the PIX US Newsprint 27.65 lb (45 g).

2. As newsprint of lower brightness has become more common, Fastmarkets FOEX proposes to adjust its current specifications from 58-60 ISO to 55-58 ISO.

3. Fastmarkets FOEX currently tracks US newsprint delivered to the east coast. We are investigating whether to include deliveries to the west coast in one single US Newsprint index.  Fastmarkets FOEX encourages market participants to submit feedback on such a potential change.

The following price series would be affected:

PIX US Newsprint (30 lb/48.8 g)

PIX US Newsprint 27.65 lb (45 g)

The changes #1 and #2 would likely be implemented at the start of 2020. Depending on the feedback received, we will evaluate how to move forward with #3.

Fastmarkets FOEX is inviting feedback on these proposals by July 31st, 2019. To comment, please email hello.foex@fastmarkets.com indicating “PIX US Newsprint” in the subject line of the email.

COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to PIX Forest Biomass Finland – Final Decision

HELSINKI, May 24, 2019 (PIX Bioenergy and Wood Indices) – Following a market consultation with no objections to the proposal received, Fastmarkets FOEX would like to confirm the following changes to its PIX Forest Biomass Finland index and its sub-indices with no material changes:

PIX Bioenergy and Wood Indices:

  • Specify the eligible price definition concerning longer than 12-month transactions
  • Detail the eligible price definition concerning indexed prices
  • Define the grade classification using Fuel Classification 2019 by Statistics Finland
  • Specify the delivery terms to DDU, unloaded at buyer’s plant/ TOP Finnterms
  • The specifications will be in English, with a Finnish summary including all parts concerning price reporting practices available

Outside of the specifications themselves, Fastmarkets FOEX will replace the unofficial logging residue & unpruned stem chip number in the monthly letter with only logging residue number, and considers publishing a separate sub-index for that in the future. Also, regional collection and publishing for the indices will be considered and developed further.

For queries, please email hello.foex@fastmarkets.com, indicating “PIX Forest Biomass Finland” in the subject line of the email.
