Historical Options Data

Lately I have received several requests to help identify sources of historical options data. First keep in mind that online brokers specializing in options (such as thinkorswim and optionsXpress) often make a surprising amount of options data available to account holders.

That being said, the two data providers that I most often find myself recommending are (in alphabetical order):

  • IVolatility.com

  • Market Data Express – a sponsor of VIX and More that is currently offering free registration for those who click on the “Get More Data” button in the advertisement at the upper right hand corner of the blog

I clicked on the 'Get More Data' button and got this:

I am interested in data sources. I have started using IVolatility to get data but would be interested to see what this link has.

Thanks

Hi Douglas,

Thanks for the heads up.

The Market Data Express link is supposed to take you to this Market Data Express free sample page.

Cheers,
