Thomson Reuters provides professionals with the intelligence, technology, and human expertise they need to find trusted answers. It enables professionals in financial markets, risk, legal, tax and accounting, energy, agriculture, and metals to make the decisions that matter most, all powered by the world's most trusted news organization. Thomson Reuters market-leading commodities content includes end-of-day and historical prices from all the major commodities exchanges around the world; research and analysis, including weather, commodity trade flows, and supply and demand forecasts; and fundamentals data, a consolidated set of current and historical commodities data as well as forecasts that provide in-depth insight into both the physical and futures markets.

“Eka’s Commodity Analytics Cloud analyzes large volumes of data from throughout the value chain to answer our customers’ most important questions,” said Aftab Pasha, director of product strategy and global partnerships at Eka. “Having access to the right data at the right time is key to good decision making. Thomson Reuters data is pre-integrated into Eka’s systems so the information is always available when our customers need it. Commodity Analytics Cloud combines Thomson Reuters market leading commodities insight with additional information sources such as CTRM and ETRM software, CRM, ERP, IoT sensors, and more, and uses machine learning algorithms to analyze all of the data to enable better, fact-based decisions.”
