Portara’s standard daily CAC 40 futures data is made up of five data points – open, high, low, last-price and settle. Simply choose to have the daily close based on the last price or the settle depending on whether you wish follow extended sessions or just the day session.

However, you may also choose other bar granularities such as 2 minute bar, 3 minute bar, 5 minute bar, 10 minute bar, 15 minute bar, 30 minute bar, hourly bar etc. You can also have us extract daily data straight from the intraday database. In this case, you would choose the session (even if you need to cross midnight) and we can supply the custom daily data between only between the custom session markers you choose.
