Forward Curve Panel
Forward Curve (or Futures Curve) is the plotting of the current price for each futures contracts on commodity, swap or interest rate, at a certain date in the future. While it is a key indicator of today’s market sentiment, the forward curve is not a price forecast – it is a set of today’s prices for dates ahead.
After launching the panel, add the analyzed instrument and you can see prices for all forward contracts on a single curve. By changing to the Term Structure, you will see the ratio of all contracts to the current.
Additionally, you can add different assets to one chart and compare them with each other.
Using the Historical Curves mode, you can compare several lines at the same time for different dates and estimate the change of the curve in time.
