Important to Note: The price ranges in Resource-Net's reports are developed through regular dialogue with industry participants and other sources. The ranges represent transactions over the entire month, so they do not indicate the market prices prevailing on the precise date of the report. We neither seek or receive information about individual transactions. Our prices are not subject to regulatory supervision, so they should not be interpreted as being equivalent to market indices as produced by the "price reporting agencies". As reports are typically published on the final Monday of each month, the pricing indications are effectively historical. If any subscribers consider using our prices in sales agreements, they should take note of these comments.
