Historical Data

Cboe LiveVol Implied Volatility Blends capture term structure and solve for expiration-specific and constant maturity implied volatilities encapsulated within the range of option expirations. Capturing the constant maturity volatilities helps traders visualize and track the behavior of volatility over time providing context to current market implied volatility. To build out our volatility blends we first solve for the at-the-money volatility of each expiration to capture the term-structure of the volatility. Next, using a cubic spline approach, we fit a curve to the term-structure. Using the fitted curve, we solve for the constant maturity (IV30, IV60, IV90, etc.) time periods offered in the file. *Constant maturity times that fall outside the range of expirations available for a particular symbol will be zero. This dataset is only available with end of day granularity.
Our end-of-day option quotes file actually provides two snapshots of market quote and size, one at 15:45 and another at the market close (market closing time is product dependent). Summary trading data is also included in the files. The first, last, lowest and highest trade in every series, as well as, the total volume, VWAP and open interest.
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.
