Unique Advantages of FX4casts Forecasts
Consensus forecasts are updated 3 times a month making FX4casts more timely and pertinent when compared with publications that have only monthly forecasts that often have a short shelf life.
FX4casts consensus forecasts use geometric means rather than arithmetic means. A geometric mean retains all of the forecasts and exponentially reduces the value of the extremes. Subscribers benefit as this is more representative of the group’s expectations than an arithmetic mean that could be greatly distorted by extreme outliers.
