Forward Curve Chart

A forward curve is a specialized chart used to visualize the future expectation of price for a commodity. The plot is a calculation showing the current price against the contract's expiration date. 

The chart is plotted as a monthly chart. While you can add a study, change the chart style, or add drawing tools, a Forward Curve chart has no other properties.

  1. Click the + icon in the bottom right corner of your workspace to open the Panel Chooser.
  2. From the Futures group, select Forward Curve.

    Result: A preview chart is opened for you to configure before adding it to your workspace. Before adding to your workspace, you may change the symbol, add studies, change settings, etc.
  3. When finished configuring the chart, click Add to Workspace.
  4. If you are adding the panel to a new workspace with no other panels, the chart will fill the entire workspace. If the workspace already has one or more panels, move your cursor to the position on the workspace where you wish to drop it, then click.
