An Excellent Tool For Tracking Futures Markets

Thanks to an alert reader for pointing out this new feature from the excellent FinViz site. The various futures contracts are grouped and updated regularly (click on display for detail). When you go to the site and hold the mouse over any particular contract, a chart pops up; click on the contract and you get an expanded chart.

It's a great way to see how money is flowing and to catch themes in the day's trade. The bottom row in particular provides a nice relative view of currency strength and weakness.
