“Finally, a much needed chart reference piece by the group that made technical analysis acceptable - Commodity Research Bureau. There are 10-year and 40-year bar charts for every futures contract of note in this volume. This gives the serious trader one valuable asset in every trade - PERSPECTIVE! Once you begin using these long-term charts, you 'can't go back.' Some charts, such as the currencies, have prices back to the 1920s.
Each type of market - metals, grains, stock indexes, energies, etc. has a thorough written summary about the written history and events for the prior 20-40 years.
For about twenty years until 1994, they used to publish a yearly 'Encyclopedia of Historical Charts' with daily charts for every single contract traded. This became the bible for anyone who wanted to check up on prior all-time highs, support and resistance levels, patterns of bull and bear price runs and price ranges in the past for a specific market. As a technician, I favor intelligence in my trading decisions. It is from these type charts that I learned to mark on the future, right side price scale all the prior highs (h) and support/resistance levels (s/r). These in turn, helped me to exit and re-enter trades in my position trading.
Also assisting one's judgment are the Commitments of Traders reports plotted down at the bottom of all the 10-year charts. Invaluable!
As an aid to assist the more financially trained, most of the individual physicals' charts are shown 'modified' with inflation data. As a result, you can see where the relative value of these commodity and financial markets are.
One thing that caught my eye is the chart histories on the metals group. Not only are the five main U.S. metals traded in the U.S. shown, but the six base metals in London are also given.
Various data is also presented in the Encyclopedia just like in their other 'bible,' the CRB Yearbook. Economic statistics from employment to production is listed in tabular form as well as a chart forma. Anyone wanting answers of this type has them at their fingertips and doesn't need to go through any searches. It's all right there!”
