Historical Data

The Gemini marketplace conducts auctions for certain trading pairs every day (including weekends and holidays), which foster moments of elevated liquidity and price discovery. The Auction file contains the auction-only order book for the 4pm ET BTCUSD, ETHUSD, or ZECUSD auction on the Gemini exchange on weekdays (non-NYSE holidays).


The auction-only order book supports both market and limit orders. These orders rest on the auction-only book until the auction runs. Auction-only orders may be placed up until the auction runs but may not be cancelled after the final indicative price is published at 3:50pm ET


Only auction-only orders that were explicitly accepted to the book show up in this file. Orders that were placed but rejected due to insufficient funds or self-cross do not show up in this file. There is not an explicit close event portrayed in this file. An auction-only order is closed and off the books when that order id is either cancelled or filled with no quantity remaining. Fill events are portrayed as a single rows for each order filled during the auction; both continuous book and auction book orders may be filled. Auction-only orders are distinguished by the Execution Option value auction-only.


Availability dates:
Gemini launched the 4pm ET BTCUSD auction on 21 September 2016.
Gemini launched the 4pm ET ETHUSD auction on 28 July 2017.
Gemini launched the 4pm ET ZECUSD auction on 22 May 2018

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.
OPRA data is trades and quotes disseminated from all US options exchanges which are reported by OPRA (Options Price Reporting Authority). The OPRA data is only available as a bulk data purchase, the minimum purchase is one month which covers all Equities, Indexes, and ETFs with listed options. OPRA is an extremely large dataset, one month is typically between 800GB and 1TB and it will require hard drives to transfer the data onto. The amount of data and date ranges will determine the number of hard drives required for the order. Please note, the price of hardware is NOT included in the pricing list for the data, it is determined after the order is received by Cboe LiveVol, LLC. There is an additional charge of $150.00 per hard drive required. The OPRA data comes as a gzipped.csv, each day will have 26 files and is sorted alphabetically by option class and time. Each trade and quote also has the underlying instrument’s price on it. The older OPRA data’s expiration date is recorded as the standard (3rd Friday of the month) expiration for all records. The historical OPRA data dates back to July 2004.
