Our end-of-day option quotes with Calcs file provides all of the fields in the end-of-day Option quotes file plus market implied volatility for each option, as well as, the greeks (Delta, Gamma, Theta, Vega and Rho). Implied volatility and Greeks are calculated off of the 1545 timestamp, since it is considered a more accurate snapshot of market liquidity than the end of day market. Effective February 5, 2020 on half trading days, the value in the "1545" column will be taken at 12:45 pm ET and the column name of 1545 will be unchanged.

Open-Close data is a volume summary file for trading activity on the C1 exchange. Available in 10-minute summary intervals or as an end-of-day summary, it aggregates and buckets the volume by origin (customer, professional customer, broker-dealer, and market maker), buying/selling, and opening/closing criteria. The customer and professional customer volume are further broken down into trade size buckets (fewer than 100 contracts, 100-199 contracts, greater than 199 contracts). Fields 10-17 will only be available in the end-of-day files and will not be populated in the 10-minute intervals. It contains all series in an underlying security's chain-if it has volume on C1.
