How do I find option symbols back into the past?

  1. For example, in 2008, there were option symbols such as:


    I couldn't find their historical data before expiration in 2008, not even their symbols in Yahoo Finance.

    Where could I find them? I wanted to review some imaginary trades back into that historical time...
  2. I ran into this same problem a few months back. I wasn't able to find any site that could offer free historical option data. However poweroptions offers a (free) 14day trial and I think it has everything you're looking for. I'd recommend checking it out.
  3. I happened to have been familiar with PowerOpt. Which menu allows me to do that search on historical symbol and data?
