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.
MDR data is quotes and trades captured by Cboe’s internal data retrieval systems. MDR data is offered in the following Cboe exclusive indicies: ^VIX, ^SPX and ^OEX. The amount history available of the data varies by symbol; ^SPX from January 1990, ^OEX-January 1990 and ^VIX-March 2006. The MDR can typically fit onto a few DVDs, therefore, no surcharge is needed for additional hardware.
Our option trades files have the supporting information needed to provide context to trading activity. Included with each trade is the trade price and size, the exchange where the trade printed, the NBBO quote and depth, the underlying bid and ask, and each of the individual exchange markets.
