Discontinuance of the "Bank of Japan Overseas Commodity Index (OCI)"

July 31, 2017
Bank of Japan

The Bank of Japan has ceased publication of the "Bank of Japan Overseas Commodity Index (OCI)," given users' limited need for it and the availability of alternative data sources.
The "All Commodity Price Index," which is available in the Primary Commodity Prices released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), shows movements of major international commodity prices similar to those of the OCI. For data and details of the "All Commodity Price Index" -- such as the compilation method, coverage, and weights -- see the IMF website (Link to an external website).
