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.
"Make This My Default Page"
Logged in users have the option to select any tab (Currencies, Grains, etc.), select any timeframe and view, then save that page as the default page to open next time you come to the Highs/Lows page.
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.
For pages showing Intraday views, we use the current session's data with new price data appear on the page as indicated by a "flash". Stocks: 15 minute delay (Cboe BZX data for U.S. equities is real-time), ET. Volume reflects consolidated markets. Futures and Forex: 10 or 15 minute delay, CT.
The list of symbols included on the page is updated every 10 minutes throughout the trading day. However, new stocks are not automatically added to or re-ranked on the page until the site performs its 10-minute update.
For reference, we include the date and timestamp of when the list was last updated at the top right of the page.
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.
- Technical View: Symbol, Name, Last Price, Today's Opinion, 20-Day Relative Strength, 20-Day Historic Volatility, 20-Day Average Volume, 52-Week High and 52-Week Low.

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 5 downloads per day, while Barchart Premier Members may download up to 100 .csv files per day.
Note: Due to licensing restrictions, Canadian fundamental data cannot be downloaded from Barchart.com. You will see "N/L" in a downloaded column when this is the case.
