Abstract: This CD-ROM contains historical tick-by-tick futures prices. It includes all U.S. and many international futures contracts, indexes, and options on futures. Much of the database extends as far back as 1974. Data are distributed in two time frames: tick-by-tick (time and sales) and daily (open, high, low, close, volume, open interest, total volume, and total open interest for each day). A data management program allows users to view, plot, and sample at any time interval the raw data, and convert them to other formats such as ASCII.
