  1. I was wondering if anyone knows a free sight where you can find historcal data
    (preferably daily) on max pain and put/call info for individual stocks.

    CBOE is useful for large index put/call ratios, but i haven't been able to find the same data for individual stocks.

    FYI, my son the computer genius and I did a 3 year study of max pain for QQQQ a while ago. Could not discover any way to trade the info.

    A couple of years ago I looked back over 2 - 3 years of max pain data and came to the same conclusion.

    I believe ISE uses proprietary put/call info generated on their exchange add a fudge factor and publish meaningful data asit applies to the overall indexes (QQQ, IWM, SPY, DIA). I recently attended a conference where the ISE option exchange gave a pitch for their product(s) and showed how to use them. They also said traditional put/call ratios without the commercials removed and the fudge factor implemented were NOT useful. They also talked a little about individual issues and yes that data can be used as well.


  6. Use the main stocks of the indices max pain to get a bias... the index max pains dont work as well.
