If you compare a stock chart and a futures chart, you will see that they look very differently. Futures contracts represent an agreement to purchase a certain amount of a certain commodity on a particular date (also known as delivery date). This agreement is usually made 3 months in advance, the typical life of a contract.
Commodities can be cash commodities, or actual materials, like gold, copper, pork or wheat. A futures contract is called a contract because it requires physical delivery at a specific date in the future, and the buyer has to accept unless the futures contract is sold before it’s due (expired).
Buyers and sellers of futures contracts agree with the sellers on a fixed price to purchase a commodity at the delivery date. As time goes on, the price of the futures contract fluctuates, due to different expectations of what the price should be. Futures charts are used to track these price changes and speculative traders can profit or lose on these movements.
The purpose in using futures trading charts is obvious – traders need latest information on price movements and other relevant information in order to invest or protect existing investments. Trading charts are a gateway to the world of trading futures contracts, so it’s essential to have a reliable provider that you trust. TradingView streams futures data from leading market providers, and US company data is taken from Edgar-Online, a trademark of the Securities and Exchanges Commission.
Most popular futures charts are listed in this section. There are many futures sectors: Metals Futures Energy and Oil Futures, Grains and Oilseed Futures, Currency Futures, Index Futures, Interest Rate & Bond Futures. TradingView supports all popular futures chart types, such as candles, area, OHLC bars and lines.

Searching for web-based futures trading charts often locates resources that offer software downloads instead. These services require you to open the software in order to view the futures charts that you want. There is nothing wrong with standalone software charting, but there are many disadvantages when compared to web-based futures charts. Software needs installing, it often needs updates, it can become corrupted on your computer, and futures charts are only available on the computer where the software installed. Web-based futures charts allow you to quickly and easily see data from anywhere with an Internet connection, without having to worry about installations, permissions or downloads. Simple and intuitive web-based futures charts give you access to everything you need from any browser.
