    I'm thinking of trading in wheat futures.

    Would appreciate if anyone can advise regarding the following:

    1. Should I trade through Cbot? (I'm trading through IB).

    2. Are the contracts traded throughout the whole year, or are they like the indexes which expires every month/quarter.

    3. Which contract should I be trading i.e. which ones have high volumes.

    4. Where can I obtain historical data (as far back as possible).

    Thanks in advance
