48) In order to establish the fundamental supply and demand factors on prices, the Commission tracked the most important factors affecting prices over the last five years, by looking at extracts from the journal 'Metals analysis outlook`, which forecasts the development of the market quarter by quarter. According to these documents it was found that the most important factors are:
- forecasts in the South African production, expansion or suspension of shafts,
- level of recycled platinum,
- level of Almaz's sales for the Russian State, forecast from the nickel production and levels of stockpiles,
- offtake for autocatalyst and car demand,
- jewellery demand in Japan, economic conditions in that country and the yen/dollar exchange rates, and,
- pipeline stocks (stock in process).
