    Hi everyone,

    Anyone have a free site for historical IV information? Or even a free place to download the raw historical data?

    I'm only a year in to trading options (basically, covered calls) but looking to start with some more fun trading :)


    P.S. Sorry if it is well known you can't get this data for free

  2. It's okay to have fun, but the purpose of investing is not to have fun.
    If you do not respect your money, it will not remain yours very long.

    You can get IV data at no cost. It is published weekly. To get historical data, best to collect the data going forward.
