Complete Intelligence is focused on relevant, high-quality forecast data for corporates, governments and small / mid-sized firms. Our data is collected, cleaned, and forecast through a statistically-valid process to help our clients make informed and timely decisions. Our interface is clean, clear and concise. We don’t bog our customers down with unnecessarily confusing interfaces, ill-informed or overly-wordy narratives, or hard-coded “forecasts” that are manually adjusted so they’re not too far off of the “consensus number.” We have a real model. We do real forecasts. And we want to help you make better decisions.

Custom Forecasting Questions
Yes. Complete Intelligence can provide a specifically designed API to suit your needs—whether through your existing corporate systems or through existing 3rd party platforms and providers. Our goal is to give you a seamless and efficient interface to our platform—which is particularly important for more involved analyses.
Yes! However, these are fee based, so if you would like to ask about custom forecasts, please let us know how we can help you.
Our data comes primarily from publicly available sources: multilateral agencies, national statistical agencies, market and exchange closing data, and industry associations.
We typically reforecast all of our data once a week. This is a complete reforecasting process, wherein we reexamine and reconfigure our algorithms for every data series on a weekly basis to reflect the very small and incremental changes that occur in the world economy and markets each week.
Values are current US dollar values for the month and year reported.
Multilateral organizations may track some nations in ways that may be confusing for users unfamiliar with the individual methodologies. Norway, for example, is tracked by the United Nations as 'Norway, Svalbard and Jan Mayen'. Switzerland is tracked by the UN as 'Switzerland, Liechtenstein'. In these cases, we have simplified the names to 'Norway' and 'Switzerland' and may do so for other countries where no other simplified option is available.
We are a data firm. There is a lot of economic and industry commentary available Bloomberg, CNBC, Reuters, Yahoo, Google, IMF, and World Bank. Complete Intelligence also produces regular market commentary on our Youtube channel and our website.
Of course we do. Just let us know the data series and countries you would like as well as the format you prefer. Contact us at Info@completeintel.com and let us know the name of your organization, how you will use the data, and how we can contact you (no Google, Hotmail or generic email IDs, please).
Yes, you can access the data and export it in Excel-friendly CSV format from CI Futures dashboard.
Our commodity prices are based on futures contract pricing. In order to account for all active futures contracts, we calculate a “continuous futures” price, which is generally similar to the way stock splits are handled for equity market calculations.
We use continuous futures to eliminate jumps in price between consecutive futures contracts. To calculate continuous futures, we identify the difference between the back contract settle price and the front contract settle price on each roll date. This difference is added to the back contracts. The entire historical series is not adjusted for the new ratio to avoid distortions of actual historical data.
The correlation listed next to each asset represents the relationship of that particular asset with the economic indicators that we test as outlined in our methodology. It works as an indicator to the certainty of our forecasts. The range varies from -1 to +1. So, +1 is a perfect fit, -1 is a perfect inverse fit and 0 is not a fit. The closer it is to 0, the lower the ability to forecast accurately. Correlation only identifies possible connections between variables; it does not prove or disprove any causal relationships.
Yes, we do this for Enterprise clients. Just let us know the data series you would like as well as the format you prefer. Contact your sales person or contact us here and let us know the name of your organization, how you will use the data, and how we can contact you.
We love students. We would be happy to come to blanket subscription agreements with your class or your university, so please contact us.
