Where can I find price forecast information for publication grade paper?

I need to obtain reliable 2006 budgeting forecast information for publication grade paper (70lb text through 65lb cover coated and uncoated stocks #3 free sheets and up). I’m looking for simple monthly, quarterly or even yearly forecasts that would aid my company.

There are two main sources for forecasting information: RISI and the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA). RISI recently released a Trend Price forecast that is downloadable from their website. Unfortunately, there isn’t a source available that goes into the specific details of weight, etc. in their forecasts.

The RISI website is: www.resourceinfo.com
The AF&PA website is: www.afandpa.statmill.org

A portion of the forecast information provided by the above organizations is public, whereas some information will require joining the organization first in order to access it.
