Where to find historical options data?

    You don't need Intraday Historical Vol Charts. I worked at a top option market maker and we didn't even have that there.

    I don't look at vol charts (at least not in my current incarnation)

    I have had access to the entire Ivydb data and it is of minimal value. Even as little as a year ago, it was worth having. Today imo it's value is dubious.

    You could probably get away with say 1 hour intraday snapshots, but I would not want to get worse than that.

    Very few people have intraday options data. It is overwhelming both computationally and storage wise. I think it is worth keeping.

    If you don't look at vol charts, what is your strategy? I hope you're not trading vol without the charts. That's flying blind.

  6. Are you the vendor? Are you the guy behind DiscountOptions? With just one post it kind of looks that way. I'm assuming it is a one-man operation, so I guess you are marketing as well as IT as well as accounting...

    Do you have an EOD update service? If so, how much is it on a monthly or annual basis? If not, if I buy the 2017 data file, how am I supposed to update it between now and the end of the year?

  7. At http://crimsonmind.com/optionsr/index.aspx,
    I read:

    "Free trial for 14 days and then $49 for each month or $117 per quarter (20% discount)"
    I'm guessing this is an automatic process where if we can forget about it, 14 days later we start getting charged. Can anyone confirm or deny?

    All the other links had various prices involved. If anyone else has ordered data because of this forum and would like to share their analyses of which data were the best deal, that would be most helpful. If I go this route, I may do this myself

    Cheers, all
