Continuous Contract Charts

Recommended Posts

I use OEC so getting price history is hard and sometimes impossible for longer time periods.

 

Does anyone know of the cheapest way to get continuous contract charts spanning multiple years. Probably the longest I would be looking back would be 10 years.

 

Cheap, long term charts.

I'm not sure what the most efficient way to do this is Dinero, but you could sign up for a data service like DTN, download as much as you can and then unsubscribe. From there you would then want to try to take the data from OEC and mesh it into 1 large database... How you do this, I have no idea or if it's even possible with OEC data. I know MultiCharts creates data databases when you load it up there. So I guess in theory you could get DTN, plug it into MultiCharts, get the database built and then have it there. But that requires a MultiCharts subscription then.

 

You can also plug eSignal data into OEC charts, but I'm not sure how that data would be stored for future use (if at all). Here's info on the eSignal plugin.

I'll look into this. Hopefully, there is someone out there that already went through this challenge and found a good solution. We'll see what I can turn up.

open a small account at Tradestation and do min trades.

 

if just want a timeframe or 2 -- download data to excel and then drop tradestation.

 

That's not a bad idea if TS has you what you want. Of course then you have to learn a new charting and order entry system so that may not be what you are looking for either.

 

The simplest way I think is the eSignal plugin. You'll have to buy eSignal data, but maybe they have a delayed and/or end of day only package you can use?

I have been through this already so if you want daily and or 30-min S&P Futures (ES) data, I can just post it for you. no charge :). Have it back through 12/31/01 --- which is about when the e-mini really started to get liquid.

Thanks frank. I don't trade the ES but I appreciate the offer. I am mostly looking at Oil (CL), Soybeans (ZS), and Russel (TF or RLM-OEC).

No problem, here is Soybeans pit back till 1983. There is a period of 2-3 years missing in the early 2000 era.

 

You've exposed my inexperience.

How does the Soybeans pit relate to the non-pit contract? I haven't gotten around to learning the differences.

Pit covers different session times. They are traded on the floor instead of Globex which is traded electronically.

 

Pit session is from 9:30am to 13:15pm Chicago time.

 

Also note that the electronic contract has not been around longer than the pit. So the pit carries more historical data. More info: Soybeans (pit also known as open outcry)

 

Ive been informed that Soybeans on Globex was launched on January 13, 2008.

    • USDCHF Bounces Off Lower Prices On Correction.   USDCHF bounces off lower prices on correction the past week. This has opened the door for more gain in the new week. Resistance resides at the 0.9800 level. Above here, resistance lies at the 0.9850 level and then the 0.9900 level. Further out, resistance comes in at the 0.9950 level. On the downside, support is seen at the 0.9750 level with a turn below here opening the door for more decline towards the 0.9700 level. And then the 0.9650 level. Further down, support resides at the 0.9600 level. All in all, USDCHF remains biased to the upside on further corrective strength.

    • Extend Trend Lines is a VTL Client-side indicator for elongating the trend lines on the chart to the last bar. Traders usually draw trend lines on the chart and use them as support resistance levels. When a trend line breakout happens, it is the beginning of a new trend. One issue with trend lines drawn manually on the chart is that they do not get elongated when new bars form on the chart. It should be manually adjusted with new bars.  Extend Trend Lines VTL Indicator takes care of this situation. It automatically adjusts all trend lines on the chart to the last bar. It monitors the trend lines on each new bar and adjust them.  This is useful when the trader opens the terminal on a new day and the old trend lines are short and need adjustments.   ExtendTrendLines.zip
    • Previous day high low is a Client Side VTL indicator that draws the last day’s high, low and today’s open on the chart. When day trading, the previous day’s high and low are important reference points or support resistance levels. In a bullish market price breaks above the previous day’s high early in the day and continue to trade above that level.  In bear markets, price break below the previous day’s low early in the day and continue to trade below that level.  Trading ranges form when price fails to break the previous day’s high or low successfully.  This info alone can improve your trading results as this give you a clear vision of what is likely to happen today. Breakout trading strategies work best when price is above or below yesterday’s range. Trend following strategies also work best in this situation.  When price is inside yesterday range, counter trend strategies work better. Oscillators like RSI and Stochastics work best in this situation.   Prev_Day_High_Low.zip
