Past "implied volatility" for wheat?

    Does anyone have a resource for determining past option premiums/implied volatility, for individual ag futures? Specifically wheat?

    I'd like to see what implied volatility was last fall, for example.

    I've looked at option premiums for DBA, the ETF that tracks 4 different ags. That's a pretty good start. I'd love to see something that was particular to each future individually, however.

    Thanks in advance.
  2. Contact the CBOT/CME, KCBOT and the MGE for info. could have something too. :cool:

    Yikes, I get the feeling the exchanges (if they offer that info) will charge up the wazoo.

    IVolatility is what I use for equities, didn't see commodities on there. Will look again.
  4. If you really feel motivated, you can go through back issues of the Wall Street Journal or Investors Daily and calculate implied vols from the option settlement prices via paper and pencil. :cool:
