Data for the energy and commodities markets is growing at an exponential rate.

For those of us working in these industries, it can often be a struggle to keep up when we’re constantly bombarded with new locations, new data reports and new data providers.

Searching for the right data becomes even more complicated when you’re stuck questioning who’s providing what report for a particular pricing point. Trudging through multiple sources can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Take the example of Henry Hub, the benchmark for US natural gas markets. There are exchanges and brokers who trade financial derivatives built on the underlying Henry Hub prices, as well as data publishers who develop various assessments. The sheer volume of related data can be overwhelming.

In order to simplify the search, you need comprehensive and easy-to-use search tools.

Introducing ZEMA 4: the latest version of the award-winning software ‘the ZEMA Suite’, which is due for release next month.
