    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for some important data, I need for my finance project.
    I now it s quite challenging to get this and normally you would have to pay for it but perhaps there is anyone who knows a better (cheaper) way...

    historical data (e.g. 1990 - now) for:

    option prices and implied volatilities on big indices (S&P 500, Dow Jones30, Nasdaq, Dow Jones100,...)

    I don't know at all how or where to get this data.
    any help would be great

  2. I come from the futures scene and I know that some futures brokers provide free data. You might want to try some stock brokers websites for free material. Should be pretty easy to find.
