Eggs Futures Contract Historical Data


Why Collate Eggs Futures Contract Price Data?

W D Gann wrote many courses that are hard to study without complete chart data to enable seeing his descriptions in context, the Eggs lesson in “How to Make Profits in Commodities” (pages 269-274) among them.


How to Make Profits in Commodities” can be purchased from the WD Gann Inc (Click here).


This Eggs Historical Price Data compilation provides those studying WD Gann’s Eggs lesson the price only data necessary to study Gann’s lesson, in context within their favourite market analysis software and to extrapolate those trading methodologies to the present time.

This prompted the Auld Tyma to go on a search for the Eggs market data from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. This meant searching back through the financial pages of the Chicago Tribute and the Wall Street Journal newspapers through the period 1918 to 1967 when Eggs Futures trading ceased.
