Indices must be adapted constantly to changing conditions so they can fulfill their purpose as measuring instruments for the Grand Exchange Market Watch. Price and volume data must also be adjusted on occasions where there is missing data, data vandalism in the wiki, or when the official Grand Exchange Database produces incomplete or erroneous data.

This page lists the methods and calculations used for the adjustments made to the indices and the data. For general information regarding the Grand Exchange Market Watch, see Grand Exchange Market Watch/FAQ.

Calculations

From the old divisor obtained from the templates:

$ {div}_{\text{old}} = 14.0000 $


We need to calculate a new divisor:

$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $


To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} \\ & = \frac{6}{11} + \frac{3}{10} + \frac{6}{15} + \dots + \frac{556}{335} \\ & = 8.93366198 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


And also:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{sum of added ratios} \\ & = \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{number of added items} \\ & = 8.93366198 - 0 + 1 \\ & = 9.933661982 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


Thus, the new divisor is:

$ \begin{align} {div}_{\text{new}} & = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} \\ & = 14.0000 \times \frac{9.93366198}{8.93366198} \\ & = 15.5671 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $

Calculations

From the old divisor obtained from the templates:

$ {div}_{\text{old}} = 32.0000 $


We need to calculate a new divisor:

$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $


To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} \\ & = \frac{121}{490} + \frac{25}{192} + \frac{121}{216} + \dots + \frac{25,400}{2,762} \\ & = 51.57722802 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


And also:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{sum of added ratios} \\ & = \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{number of added items} \\ & = 51.57722802 - 0 + 2 \\ & = 53.57722802 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


Thus, the new divisor is:

$ \begin{align} {div}_{\text{new}} & = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} \\ & = 32.0000 \times \frac{53.57722802}{51.57722802} \\ & = 33.2409 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $

And also:

Thus, the new divisor is:

Calculations

From the old divisor obtained from the templates:

We need to calculate a new divisor:

$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $


To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:

$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $


To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} \\ & = \frac{2,147,483,557}{688,800,000} + \frac{2,147,483,647}{340,100,000} + \frac{1,490,829,327}{114,800,000} + \dots + \frac{12,593,302}{2,295,576} + \frac{3,926,892}{8,307,542} \\ & = 230.87579845 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


And also:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{sum of added ratios} \\ & = \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{number of added items} \\ & = 230.87579845 - 0 + 1 \\ & = 231.87579845 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


Thus, the new divisor is:

$ \begin{align} {div}_{\text{new}} & = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} \\ & = 15.2129 \times \frac{231.87579845}{230.87579845} \\ & = 15.2787 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $

Calculations

From the old divisor obtained from the templates:

$ {div}_{\text{old}} = 19.0000 $


We need to calculate a new divisor:

$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $


To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} \\ & = \text{sum of unchanged ratios} + \text{sum of removed ratios} \\ & = \left (\frac{196}{175} + \frac{225}{195} + \dots + \frac{421}{150} \right ) + \left (\frac{810}{887} + \frac{276}{32} + \dots + \frac{1,102}{100} \right ) \\ & = 42.27255853 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


And also:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{sum of added ratios} \\ & = \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{number of added items} \\ & = 42.27255853 - \left ( \frac{810}{887} + \frac{276}{32} + \dots + \frac{1,102}{100} \right ) + 7 \\ & = 19.49428715 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


Thus, the new divisor is:

$ \begin{align} {div}_{\text{new}} & = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} \\ & = 19.0000 \times \frac{42.27255853}{19.49428715} \\ & = 8.7619 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $

Price dataEdit

Price updating prior to 2012 was done by users either by: checking the in-game prices, or by referring to the Grand Exchange Database. The price data, however, were neither 100% accurate (due to rounding and human errors), nor continuous (due to lack of source for historical data). However, in 2012, Jagex started storing accurate historical data in their database for up to 180 days. This enabled our bots (and users) to obtain continuous accurate data.

Nevertheless, there have been several occasions where the Grand Exchange Database failed:

23–26 March 2012
  • Update: Unknown edit
  • Affected period: 23–26 March 2012 (4 days)
  • Affected items: All items
  • Comment: Prices from 22 March 2012 shown throughout the affected period.

Adjustment method

To approximate the prices, the average of the closest known prices (22 March and 27 March) is used. The formula for the k-th missing price is as follows:


$ {p}_{\text{k}} = {p}_{\text{start}} + \frac{{p}_{\text{end}} - {p}_{\text{start}}}{({d}_{\text{end} \to \text{start}})} \times ({d}_{\text{k} \to \text{start}}) $


For example, if the price for Item A is 331 coins on 22 March (P22) and 292 coins on 27 March (P27), then the price for 23 March (P23) would be:


$ \begin{align} {p}_{\text{23}} &= {p}_{\text{22}} + \frac{{p}_{\text{27}} - {p}_{\text{22}}}{({d}_{\text{27} \to \text{22}})} \times ({d}_{\text{23} \to \text{22}}) \\ \\ &= 331 + \frac{292-331}{5} \times 1 \\ \\ &= 323.2 = 323 \; \text{(rounded to nearest coin)} \end{align} $


And, the price for 24 March (P24) would be:


$ \begin{align} {p}_{\text{24}} &= {p}_{\text{22}} + \frac{{p}_{\text{27}} - {p}_{\text{22}}}{({d}_{\text{27} \to \text{22}})} \times ({d}_{\text{24} \to \text{22}}) \\ \\ &= 331 + \frac{292-331}{5} \times 2 \\ \\ &= 315.4 = 315 \; \text{(rounded to nearest coin)} \end{align} $


And so on. Thus, using the formula for the missing days, the approximate prices would be:

Date > 22 March 23 March 24 March 25 March 26 March 27 March
Item A (price) 331

Volume dataEdit

Since volume data is only available for the 100 most actively traded items on a particular day, there will be occasions where a previously "top 100" item falls out of the "top 100" list. If the item returns to the "top 100" list within a short period, the volume data for the missing days is approximated and added retrospectively.
