An update...

Hello,

I have recently been looking for Stock Options historical data and provided a bunch of data services in the previous post. Here is a quick update on what I have found.

http://www.historicaloptiondata.com/
http://www.tbsp.com/

Both of them have significant amounts of data at a good price.

So, the question is Who to purchase from?

Along with it there are some questions:
Has anyone used these data providers before?
What do you think about their data?
Do you know of anyone that sells same data cheaper?

Thanks in advance,

Jamie.

I apologize for answering a question with a question ...

If I may ask, what type of analysis do you plan to use historical option data for?

QQQShort,

that's alright. I'm just planning on some basic TA procedures. Why? Do you also need similar data? What do you do?

Jamie,

I use options for directional trades of indexes. My analysis is on the underlying index, then ITM options are used to leverage the trades.

Technical analysis of options can be problematic because of volatility, time decay and low liquidity. As an example, the price of OTM options might decline as time passes even though the price of the underlying might be flat or rising.

You might be sufficiently familiar with options to already know about these issues. If so, slap me on the head, and I'll move aside.

Hello,

does anyone have experience with the data vendors mentioned in the first posting? I am interested in the quality of the data, in particular whether the option price precisely corresponds to the price of the underlying.

For my purpose, SPX would suffice, one price per day, for at least 10 years back. But I need to be sure that the index value and the option prices always correspond to each other. I am worried that the daily closing price is not good enough, because the last option trade may have been long before the last index value is posted.

Do you have any recommendation?

Greetings,

Victor

I have been messing around with options data also. I'm not sure if you will be able to get anything use full out of it unless you can program. Because options are based on a strike price and not on distance from underlying price a lot of data transformation needs to be done. Also keep in mind that including options data into any program and trying to run calculations on it will take up a massive amount of memory/CPU time. It takes my PC all day to run a full back test on the S&P (all 500 stocks, and I still have a few more buy/ sell signals I want to program), adding options data will easily max out RAM and greatly increase CPU time. Don't be surprised if your PC blows up if you don't have liquid cooling.
