Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We all know that fluctuations in commodity prices exert a tremendous impact on the global economy, but also everyday life of many individuals. For that reason, understanding commodity price dynamics and the ability to formulate their reliable forecasts are important to take better economic policy or investment decisions.

The key question we ask in this SI is whether it is possible to develop a method that can be successfully applied in forecasting commodity prices. We welcome submissions:

- Discussing short and long-term forecasting;

- Focusing on individual as well as a broader range of commodities;

- Using traditional econometric models as well as machine learning methods or technical analysis.

The ultimate goal is to identify methods that allow us to better understand the dynamics of commodity markets and hence which can be exploited in practice in decision-taking process.
