ICIS Dashboard subscribers who receive the price forecast report will be able to access monthly price forecast curves (depending on which price forecast report you subscribe to) on the ICIS Dashboard with commentary from our analysts, alongside up to 12-months’ worth of historical prices. 

This window allows the user to chart the price forecast against the last (rolling) twelve months of related price history. In addition to this, users can plot the last 12 months of price forecasts too enabling them to see how the forecasts have progressed as time has moved on, as well as how accurate the ICIS forecast has been.
