"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum

"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim

Hello,

I'm doing some simulations and I can't see any daily options data before 2011. Am I doing something wrong, or there are no options data before 2011?

Thank you,
Ondrej

Good morning,

That is correct, around that time we switched to the OSI symbol standard. Prior to that, symbols were reused and old data was deleted.

Is the historical option data for trades or bid/ask?

Ok, figured it was trades only but thought I'd check. Thanks Tim.
