The Method For Estimating Amount Afloat Was Not Given For December 1917 Or For February-June, 1918. No Data Are Available For July 1918-June 1919 As During This Period All Buying And Selling Was Done Through The Government. Beginning In 1928, Data (From Commodity Exchange Inc.) Were Checked By Adding Composite Items And Where Discrepancies Occured, The Computed Sum Of "Warehouse," "Landing," And "Afloat" Was Taken. The Last Issue Of The Monthly Statistical Supplement To The Daily Market Report Was That Of July 2, 1941. This Variable Was Continued By Adding Tin Metal Afloat To U.S. And Stocks Of Tin Metal -- Government, Distributors, Jobbers, And Immporters.

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.
