To ensure that The Jacobsen is capturing accurate values, The Jacobsen takes into account trades, bids and offers and indications from the market as a whole on each given day. Trading takes priority in price reporting. In the instance of a wider price spread, volumetric considerations are used to determine a price as well as the hierarchy of price exclusions. Price spreads of greater than 5 percent can be included in the price guide after a peer review process.
Trade values need to be repeatable across the market.

All buyers are eligible to bid a market higher or offer the market lower as all sellers are able to offer product lower and bid the market higher. The bids and offers must be made to the market as a whole and are subjected to scrutiny by the PRA assessors to determine if the value is an economic reality.
All transactions must be made at arm’s length.
