23 Jun 2022
Digital trader to deliver data and research on global rubber markets to increase transparency
Singapore – Helixtap Technologies, a digital platform for rubber industry price and market intelligence, has launched an initiative to share insightful data and news with Japan’s Osaka Exchange (OSE).
As part of the move, Helixtap will publish a selection of its market insights, written by an in-house team of commodities experts, on the Japanese platform’s “market news and insights”, said Helixtap 17 June.
In return, the OSE will post a weekly rubber report on the Helixtap platform, which can be accessed by creating a free account.
According to Helixtap, the mutual exchange will allow more rubber market participants to price their products more accurately by considering factors such as demand, supply, and climate change impact.
The collaboration, it added, aims to address the growing demand for transparency, improve market access, and allow market participants to understand the drivers of the physical market.
OSE is home to two types of natural rubber contracts – RSS3, which was launched in 1952, and TSR20, launched in 2018.
