German Bund data

Post by Corn Elius » Wed Apr 27, 2005 12:18 pm

CSI carries the GBL data back to 20040423. Does anyone know where I can get historical data previous to that? Just a few years, and free would be nice.

Thanks.

That's because you're looking at the Chicago Board of Trade contract, CSI commodity number 930. hyperlink: CBOT to launch Bund Futures on April 23, 2004

The DTB/EUREX Bund contract, on the other hand, goes back much farther. It is CSI commodity number 552. On my CSI setup the first day of data is 23 November 1990.

Thanks for the info, Sluggo. I only have North American Futures from CSI. Maybe I should invest in the International Markets. The Bund does seem to trend nicely.

Cheers.
