Selling prices / rates next three months
Selling prices / rates next three months
weighted response rates to the question:
- "Our selling prices / rates over the next three months will
rise, remain unchanged or fall? "
Selling prices / rates will rise
Weighted response rate of producers who expect selling

prices / rates not as relevant for their bussiness plus the weighted
response rate of producers who were not asked the question.
Balance selling prices / rates
The weighted response rate of producers who expect a
rise of selling prices / rates, minus the weighted respons rate of
producers who expect a fall of selling prices / rates.
This balance provides insight into the expected development of selling
prices / rates in the next three months.
Assessment of finished products stocks
The weighted response rates to the question:
- "We evaluate our finished products stocks / commodities, given the
expected market development, as a (too) large, normal or (too) small?
