I have been working on the crude oil futures data and have a couple of questions.

There are contracts in which the open,high are empty but the low,close price is available. And in some cases none of them are there. But in all cases the settle price is available.

Price for May 20 to Sep 21 on 16/07/2019 : View Image

Price for May 20 to Sep 22 on 15/07/2019 : View Image

Would like to know how this is possible and the reasons for those null values.

  • (How) Is this question about personal finance and money? – Jan Doggen Jul 17 at 14:35
  • @BobBaerker How can this be from a provider , given that the screenshots are from the official CME data on their website? – TomTom Jul 17 at 14:57
  • And you think that it's impossible for an exchange to put out bad data? They too have computer glitches. – Bob Baerker Jul 17 at 15:12
  • @BobBaerker the possibilities are less for the official providers to give out bad data. There might be some technical reasons as to why the data is missing. – Akshay Ramanujam Jul 18 at 4:45
