Fare trending chart...where did I see it?

I've been on about a zillion websites the past two weeks, and can't for the life of me recall which one I saw a chart (left hand side of the page) that showed the historic price trend for a specific flight or route, tracking back about 30 days or so...? Helped determine when to book, based on the trend curve.

I've circled back to several, not finding it on:
- Kayak
- Expert Flyer
- TripAdvisor (aka: Seat Guru)
- Airfare Watchdog

Seems the sidebar menu was dark blue, but that could be wildly inaccurate. My eyes are beginning to blur as I backtrack through pages in search of the chart.

Anyone have a clue where this is?

Do a fare Search in KAYAK
In the upper Left Hand corner you should see a Price Trend chart
Above it is the TOOLBOX
Open, if not already open
Click on FARE CHARTS

Thank you, thank you...turns out Kayak was the one I recalled. Didn't realize Bing had something like this too (still can't find it).

Any idea how reliable the Kayak chart is?

Sorry, was posting in a hurry..the Bing one is at http://www.bing.com/travel look for "Price Predictor". No idea about how accurate either of them are.

Info for the Bing Price Predictor is on the flight search page.
In BIG letters under Search:
Price Predictor and 5 colored dots with arrows.
The predictor does not work for all destinations
Sometimes you will see
No Price Predictor. Learn Why
Why is there no Price Predictor for your search?

Predictions are only available when searching for:
Bing Travel cities indicated in bold when entering your search.
Round trip, economy flights
Popular dates: U.S. domestic trips from 1 night to 3 weeks long within the next 180 days
Trips to or from Canada from 1 night to 8 days long within the next 90 days
Europe and Caribbean trips up to 2 weeks long within the next 120 days

No worries...I com-plete-ly understand posting on the fly (no pun intended).

Truth be told, I didn't realize Bing had a travel page. You learn something new every day...!
