"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger

Hi,
Is it possible to download historical interval data for expired VIX futures?
Thanks

You can go to ftp:\\www.dtniq.com and go to the beta folder. This contains a file called IEOPTIONS.ZIP which is a collection of all historical options symbols, which have been traded at least once. If you enter any of those options symbols into a historical request, you can get interval data for them.

Sincerely,
Gary Stephen

Are you sure? I can see options on futures, but not the VIX futures.
Also, are the columns in the file documented anywhere?
