Founded to establish transparency in the metals markets, American Metal Market set the standard for price reporting 135 years ago and, in the process, defined the benchmarks widely quoted today. Companies across the globe use AMM prices to negotiate contracts, purchase materials, understand future raw material costs, estimate project costs in proposals, perform inventory valuations and create forecast models. Here’s why you should reference AMM prices in your next report or contract.

Distinguished price discovery. Pricing is the pinnacle of what we do. The prices we publish are a fair reflection of transaction values in the spot market. AMM maintains a rich network of contacts and applies a comprehensive price formation process. The assessed prices are not published until they have been peer reviewed to ensure adherence to methodologies and pricing rigor.

Honest principles. Strict adherence to an editorial code of conduct, pricing procedures and clearly defined methodologies power every price published. These guiding principles lead AMM’s reporters to remain the most trusted in the business. Above and beyond our principles, AMM’s pricing practices align with core IOSCO Principles for Price Reporting Agencies — a set of guidelines and best practices for price reporting promoted by the International Organization of Securities Commissions.

Market intelligence that matters. Behind every price change lives an insightful story with an explanation of the forces driving the markets. The news generated from our price reporting activities allows AMM to give its clients intelligence on trade issues, mergers & acquisitions, bankruptcies and supply chain woes — all factors that can have upward or downward pressure on metal prices.

Trusted benchmarks. AMM excels at assessing metals prices. No other brand offers more metals prices or a deeper price history than AMM. Hedge financial risk, manage asset recovery, control material costs or negotiate your next contract using AMM’s prices.
