Futures Options History FAQ
We have global coverage from most global futures exchanges. Check out our options data catalog for more details.
As for the model, we use Black 76 model. As for risk-free rate, we use US Treasuries Yield and Canada Bank Rate. We use option settlement price and underlying futures settlement price, and above mentioned model and rates to calculate the implied volatility.
End-of-day (EOD) data provides complete market information including price, OIV, greeks, volatility, and metadata to users. Full data provides EOD data plus aggregate stats at the underlying options expiration level, implied volatility indices and aggregate stats at the root level. Check out the sample data.
In addition to the EOD prices and greeks at options instrument level we provide aggregate stats at the underlying options expiration level and implied volatility indices and aggregate stats at the root level. Check out the full sample data file to learn more.
In both cases, the weights are determined by considering the relative distance of the underlying security price from the two nearest strike prices, ensuring that the weighted average reflects the influence of both options. Aggregated stats are also calculated at the root level. Similarly, cvol, coi, cwiv, pvol, poi, pwiv, wiv are calculated by aggregating all option expirations.
IV Index is a measure of future root's implied volatility levels of “virtual” options expiring at constant maturities(7, 14, 30, 60, 90, 180, and 360 days). We calculate three sets of IV Indexes: IV Index, IV Call Index, and IV Put Index.
Simply speaking, IV Index is composite volatility for a root by aggregating option implied volatilities. It is a weighted average of the implied volatilities of Near-The-Money options (includes both calls and puts ) that straddle constant maturities(30, 60,… days). For example, IV30, IV60, …
The IV index calculation for Futures Options is linear weighted by distance of the two nearest active expirations from the constant maturity.
For example, for 30 days IV index, we choose the furthest active expiration that is prior to 30 days, and the closest active expiration that is after 30 days. Then we implement linear weight on the wiv(weighted ATM IV) of those two active expirations to calculate the IV30 index.
