Cboe Hanweck Borrow Intensity Indicators describe constant maturity synthetic lending rates derived from real-time option analytics. Borrow Intensity Indicators are a proprietary calculation based upon implied borrow, enhanced with machine learning using characteristics including relative liquidity and term in order to create constant maturities of 45, 60, 90, 180, and 360 days.


Borrow Intensity Indicators may enhance:

  • Equity trading strategies
    • Higher frequency and timeliness than equity risk model short interest factors
  • Securities lending price discovery
    • Informs on levels and trends in overnight stock-borrow loan rates, highlighting rising shorts or other conditions in the collateral market such as persistent mildly hard-to-borrow securities

Borrow Intensity Indicator Attributes:

    • Securities underlying US listed options (approximately 4,000 symbols)
    • Raw and smoothed form
    • Confidence measures supporting interpretation for every observation
  • Availability:
    • Current: 20 minute intervals, intraday

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.
Volatility skew data allows users to analyze relative option pricing levels over time series by comparing “virtual” option strikes with identical time to maturity and levels relative to spot. Our Volatility Skew files show the implied volatility levels of virtual options expiring at constant maturities, with option strikes defined by either moneyness (% from spot) or by option delta. These files allow for more appropriate comparison of implied volatility levels over time. LiveVol volatility skew data is provided with either moneyness increments (5% steps from spot from 0-60%, with additional values at 2.5% from spot) or delta increments (5 delta increments for both calls and puts). Standard maturity periods range from 30 to 360 calendar days. An auxiliary set of skew index data will be provided with each purchase. Skew indexes represent a measure of option skew by symbol and maturity for a particular day. Delta skew data is used to generate the skew index metrics: for example, SKEW90 represents the (IV of 25 delta put – IV of 25 delta call)/(50 delta call IV) for virtual options expiring in 90 days.
The equity quotes end-of-day files, recap the day’s trading activity in the underlying security. Open, high, low, close, trading volume and VWAP are included with two NBBO snapshots, one at 15:45 and another at the market close (market closing time is product dependent). Sign up for a one month or one year subscription and receive a daily delivery of your files via our FTP site. 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.

From June 15th onward the ‘close’ for End-of-Day Equity Quotes will represent the Last Traded Price during Regular Trading Hours for the symbol. There will be an additional file called UnderlyingEODSummaries_YYYY-MM-DD.zip that will contain closing marks for the day per symbol/exchange with an identification which exchange is the primary listed market for the underlying.
Select your own custom interval from 1 minute to end-of-day. Open, high, low, close, trading volume, VWAP, and underlying market (bid and ask) are included in each interval calculation. Sign up for a one month or one year subscription and receive a daily delivery of your files via our FTP site.
See every underlying trade in an underlying security. Trade price, trade size, trade condition, the trading venue and national best bid and offer are included in each record. Sign up for a one month or one year subscription and receive a daily delivery of your files via our FTP site.
Multicast PITCH provides a history of real-time depth of book quotations and execution information with nearly half the latency of TCP PITCH and 20% fewer PITCH events. This is achieved by using binary messages (PITCH 2.0).
The Cboe Europe Trades and Quotes Files are a historical record of the PITCH feed depth of book quotations and execution information. It is the most granular historical record offered on trade and quote level data on Cboe Europe.
The Cboe Europe Last Sale File is a historical record of disseminated executions on a Cboe book with trade price, volume and execution time. Because quotes are not shown, the trades file results in much less data than the trades and quotes file.
CFE OHLC data is an end of day summary file that contains the volume traded, open interest, open, high, low and last sale price along with last bid and last ask of each futures contract obtained from the Cboe Futures Exchange (CFE).
