The Futures Highs / Lows pages show the 5-Day, 1-Month, 3-Month, 6-Month, 12-Month, Year-to-Date, 3-Year, 5-Year, or 10-Year Percent Change from the same period's High or Low price for major commodity contracts. If the contract reaches a new High or Low price for the given period during the current trading session, the price and its corresponding percent is Bolded on the page.
You may view a "Full List" - the front month for all major commodities - or can choose from one of the major Commodity Groups.
The Percent from High column shows the difference between the (high price minus the lowest price for the period) divided by the lowest price for the period. The Percent from Low is the difference between the (low price minus the highest price for the period) divided by the highest price for the period.
The Futures Highs / Lows page is updated every 10 minutes throughout the trading day. You will see new price data appear on the page as indicated by a "flash". However, new symbols are not automatically added to or re-ranked on the page until the site performs its 10-minute update.
Differences to Note on the Time Period Pages
When viewing High/Low data for different time periods, it may appear that the prices and dates do not "match" between one period and the next. Keep in mind that the contract that was the front-month at the time the new high or low was reached will not likely be the same as the current lead month contract featured in each of the data tables. This difference will often produce different results.
- The 5-Day through 1-Year, and Year-to-Date High/Low pages are based on data collected using the futures contract shown.
- The 3-Year and 5-Year High/Low pages is based on data collected using the weekly nearest futures (weekly front-month) contract. All dates shown are dates at the start of the week on which the new high or low occurred.
- The 10-Year High/Low page is based on data collected using the Monthly nearest futures contract. All dates shown are dates at the start of the month on which the new high or low occurred.
Barchart Data Table
Data tables on Barchart follow a familiar format to view and access extensive information for the symbols in the table.
Pages are initially sorted in a specific order (depending on the data presented). You can re-sort the page by clicking on any of the column headings in the table.
Most data tables can be analyzed using "Views." A View simply presents the symbols on the page with a different set of columns. Site members can also display the page using Custom Views. (Simply create a free account, log in. then create and save Custom Views to be used on any data table.)
Each View has a "Links" column on the far right to access a symbol's Quote Overview, Chart, Options Quotes (when available), Barchart Opinion, and Technical Analysis page. Standard Views found throughout the site include:
- Main View: Symbol, Name, Last Price, Change, Percent Change, High, Low, Volume, and Time of Last Trade.

Data Table Expand
Unique to Barchart.com, data tables contain an "expand" option. Click the "+" icon in the first column (on the left) to "expand" the table for the selected symbol. Scroll through widgets of the different content available for the symbol. Click on any of the widgets to go to the full page.
Horzontal Scroll on Wide Tables
Especially when using a custom view, you may find that the number of columns chosen exceeds the available space to show all the data. In this case, the table must be horizontally scrolled (left to right) to view all of the information. To do this, you can either scroll to the bottom of the table and use the table's scrollbar, or you can scroll the table using your browser's built-in scroll:
- Left-click with your mouse anywhere on the table.
- Use your keyboard's left and right arrows to scroll the table.
- Repeat this anywhere as you move through the table to enable horizontal scrolling.
Also unique to Barchart, FlipCharts allow you to scroll through all the symbols on the table in a chart view. While viewing FlipCharts, you can apply a custom Chart Template, further customizing the way you can analyze the symbols. FlipCharts are a free tool available to Site Members.
Download is a free tool available to Site Members. This tool will download a .csv file for the View being displayed. For dynamically-generated tables (such as a Stock or ETF Screener) where you see more than 1000 rows of data, the download will be limited to only the first 1000 records on the table. For other static pages (such as the Russell 3000 Components list) all rows will be downloaded.
Free members are limited to 10 downloads per day, while Barchart Premier members may download up to 50 .csv files per day.
Should you require more than 50 downloads per day, please contact Barchart Sales at 866-333-7587 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or additional options about historical market data.
