ABOUT PIX PRICES
FOEX's PIX indexes are benchmark price indexes for various qualities of pulp and paper. They measure weekly the market price of the pulp or paper in question. FOEX receives real trade information from parties in the pulp and paper industry, from buyers, sellers as well as from agents. The highest 10% and the lowest 10% of the prices are eliminated, and the PIX value is calculated as an average price from the remaining prices.

PLEASE NOTE: FOEX Indexes Ltd owns the trade mark rights to the PIX indices. Any commercial use of PIX — e.g. redistribution, using PIX as reference in supply contracts — requires permission (License Agreement) from FOEX. Please contact FOEX for more information: info@foex.fi
