"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

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?
