(a) Wholesale Price of Copper, Electrolyte for New York, Cents Per Pound, Not Seasonally Adjusted (M0415BUS000NYM267NNBR)
Series Has Been Subdivided Into Two Variables: (1)-- Original Data, Lake Copper, 1860-1912; (2)-- Original Data, Electrolyte Copper, 1911-1955. Lake Copper Is From Native Copper Mines Of The Lake Superior District. The Standard Range Of Conductivity Is 99.5%. Electrolyte Copper Is Refined By The Electrolytic Process And Runs From 99.93% And Upwards For Cathodes. From 1932 On Copper Is Referred To As "Domestic" Rather Than New York. This Refers To Net Price At Refineries On The Atlantic Seaboard, Most Of Which Are Located In The New York Tidewater Area.

Use a formula to modify and combine data series into a single line. For example, invert an exchange rate a by using formula 1/a, or calculate the spread between 2 interest rates a and b by using formula a - b.

Use the assigned data series variables above (e.g. a, b, ...) together with operators {+, -, *, /, ^}, braces {(,)}, and constants {e.g. 2, 1.5} to create your own formula {e.g. 1/a, a-b, (a+b)/2, (a/(a+b+c))*100}. The default formula 'a' displays only the first data series added to this line. You may also add data series to this line before entering a formula.
