ClipperData's business - tracking commodity and merchandise flows in real time - provides deep insights into supply/demand balances, and more fundamentally the health of the global and national economies months ahead of official sources. Firms are starting to harness this data to design trading strategies, but most users are still confined to the narrow areas of predicting government releases and competitive intelligence. This provides an opportunity for data-centric traders to gain first mover advantage in mining the full potential of this large and granular data set.
