    I'm trying to do a "rough" backtest of a QQQQ options strategy. Is there a way to get options pricing data from several month ago? thanks.

  3. Are you just looking for freebies, or do you want to pay for the service?

    Was hoping for a freebie (of course) but would pay if needed.

    register and use the desktop software

    use their 'thinkback' feature
  6. Optionetic's Platinum has it very nicely.
    good luck
  7. Curious - what software are you using?

    Commercial or proprietary?

    I've looked at almost all software for backtesting options and
    none offers genuine backteting.

    Try these sites below. I suggest you pay a vendor so that
    you get good clean data. It's worth it.
