Ethanol Facts

Ethanol is a high-octane fuel which is used primarily as a gasoline additive and extender. The reduction in use of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) due to its environmental problems caused by groundwater contamination and surging prices for petroleum-based fuels are dramatically increasing the demand for ethanol and the interest in ethanol production in the United States. Ethanol can be produced from carbohydrates such as sugar, starch, and cellulose by fermentation using yeast or other organisms. Ethanol intraday futures data allows traders to address price risk of the commodity as well as the opportunity for arbitration with the price of corn futures. Ethanol and other gasoline products allow traders to participate in a liquid market as well.

Data and Format Details

Portara's formatting, timestamps and file extensions are custom tailored to suit your needs. The default formatting we offer is DateTime/Open/High/Low/Close with a CSV extension. There are minor format variations between data types.

Prices are back-adjusted, but can be adjusted into any form you need, such as forward-adjust,ratio adjust, no adjustment, and more.

Portara offers five point daily data. The five-point data is created by splitting the close into last price and settle price, as such the data formatting for the data appears as DateTime/Open/High/Low/Last Price/Settle.

Intraday data is supplied in 1-minute bar, and uses our standard formatting DateTime/Open/High/Low/Close/Volume.

Tick - Trades Only and Tick - Level 1 Data are formatted into DateTime/Open/High/Low/Close/Trade Volume.


All of our historical data is updated on a daily basis. Portara’s enterprise solution provides daily updates to your data, along with compression, roll and custom formatting features.
