  1. Hi all,

    Reading the Hull's book, it says when pricing the options on S&P 500,
    I need to take into consideration of the continuously compounded
    dividend yields.

    Where do I obtain the historical data for the dividend yields of S&P
    500? Could that be obtained from Yahoo finance?

    And in real time trading, where do I obtain that number for real time?

  2. Thanks a lot!

    That solves the problem of finding current index dividend yield on SP500...

    But where are the historical dividend yields?
