Seasonality Charts

A seasonality chart allows you to compare multiple futures contracts, whether active or expired, on the same time series.  This allows you to analyze seasonal patterns across the same calendar period. In the example below, the active contract form March 2014 Corn is compared against the three previously expired contracts. Contract expiration dates appear at the top of the chart.
