    looking for the right type of chart

    want to graph forward contracts per the attached data set and mocked up chart, in fact I have hundreds of data points so hand bombed version is impractical...any hints would be appreciated.

    I would expect to start with this "variable width column chart" (which is really an area chart) tutorial, then build on it to be a "stacked area" chart. http://peltiertech.com/variable-width-column-charts/

    Column/Bar Chart or Stacked Column/Bar Chart

    The universally useful column and bar chart is perfect for this scenario. You can stack em or you not. In fact, not stacking them improves readability when the values are close to each other as you can compare the dimensions easily with a single glance.Screen Shot 2017-01-11 at 9.01.43 PM.png
