In short, the author closely tracks global both micro and macro-economic, political and industry data, including pulp prices, energy costs, confidence indicators, business sentiments, trade, exchange rates, shipping costs, GDP, various other economic indicators, wastepaper & wood costs, etc… In addition to this, they have a global database of demand, production and capacity – by mill and machine – which is updated daily, especially in terms of investments and closures, and all this informs our demand forecast views, which itself feeds into our operating rate scenarios and subsequent price forecasts.
