To reduce the load time of these chart index pages we have separated the 38 commodities we plan to do, into 5 groups each with their own chart index page. Each active group has a link to its' page. The group pages have no menu on left or text explanation, as found on the Master Chart page.
We have a new page to help explain how our charts look over time
. This is an explanation of what these charts are and how to use them.


 
This page contains links to all these market pages. This page also has an explanation of our option and futures charts not found on the master market pages. Comments and analysis can be found in our when appropriate. We are mathematicians and not writers so if you have questions or don't understand our explanations of our charts

Explanation of OSCC Option Premium Charts

These charts reflect the relative Normalized Total Dollar Option Premiums for these contracts and are not indicative of individual strike prices in the contracts.  For an explanation of our definition of Option Premium see OSCC Model Premium This will give you an idea of how to use diverging or converging premiums against one another or between contracts.
     The option contracts are done in two charts, sometimes three.
    The first chart has the 10 trading day moving average of the individual option contracts. (Milk, Eurodollars, Corn, and Dow Jones  have two, odd and Front Month expiration date contracts). In theory all contracts should have the same value, see .
    A second has a total long term 10 trading day moving average of the average of all contracts combined with the same data adjusted to a fixed $100,000 futures value as a 10 trading day moving average. A lower premium per $100,000 future means this is a better return on invested dollar.
    There are historical charts for 1999 to date for CME and 5/1/00 to date for CBT.
    The long term chart covers from 1/4/99 to Jan 2002.

OSCC Predicted Futures
What we have done is to take the algorithm we use for T-Bonds and apply it to CME Futures. Check our T-Bond page for accuracy comments and restrictions. The charts show  today's future value and our predicted value for a year from now. Also we show the difference between the two as a percent. The old format T-Bonds use a tick value. We also show for some futures how the futures beyond a year relate to our projected values. These are of course, estimates, and no reliance or decisions should be based on them without consulting other sources and a broker.
10 trading day Chart:
We have changed from a 10 week to a 10 trading day moving average because some readers have stated the detail they saw before is missing, Our Daily value is the average of all the contracts for that day. The individual contracts vary enough that it causes the daily figure to vary substantially. Therefore we show the value of a 10 trading day moving average. This seems to show good patterns that can be used to help make trading strategy decisions. For example in September 2001 a trader with this information and the advice of a broker could see that the European currency premiums were rising. There are many cross currency strategies that could have taken advantage of this. The Canadian Dollar on the other hand was steady and could have been used as a an anchor for other strategies. We are working on some algorithms that may give an idea of where the premiums are going in the next few days.
