Commodity Research Group (CRG), founded by veteran analyst Edward Meir, is an independent research consultancy specializing in base and precious metals, as well energy products. The Group provides research and general price analysis for these markets, along with advice to companies seeking to construct hedging strategies.
Fastmarkets/Metal Bulletin’s APEX 2018 survey solidifies almost a decade-long run for Meir as one of the most accurate analysts in terms of base and precious metal price predictions.
Excerpts from a January 28, 2019 Press Release
Meir shared his thoughts in an interview: “I am extremely honored to have secured a number one ranking among my peers for Metal Bulletin’s annual APEX 2018 base metals survey. Needless to say, markets these days are frequently influenced by events beyond the scope of traditional commodity forecasting and so to have such a good result and to be recognized for it is indeed very satisfying”.
Previously, Meir received the #1 analyst ranking for base metals in 2011, 2014 and 2015 and has also obtained a top five precious metals ranking in four of the past six years (2013-2019) including a #1 finish last year.
Meir’s Commodity Research Group was retained by ED&F Man Capital Markets in October of 2019 as an independent research consultant for base metals.
