IvyDB US

 

Since its launch in 2002, the IvyDB database has been the industry standard for historical option prices and implied volatility data. Used by over 300 institutions, IvyDB contains accurate end-of-day prices for options along with their correctly calculated implied volatilities and greeks. With IvyDB, you’ll be able to evaluate risk models, test trading strategies, and perform sophisticated research on all aspects of the options markets.

Comprehensive Coverage

IvyDB contains a complete historical record of end-of-day data on all US exchange-traded equity and index options (including options on ETF’s and ADR’s) from January 1996 onward. The data includes both daily option pricing information (symbol, date, closing bid and ask quote, volume, and open interest) as well as high, low, and closing prices for the underlying equity or index. IvyDB also provides all interest rate, dividend, and corporate action information for each security, so you can correlate your own option pricing models with calculations.

 

Accurate Calculations

For each option price, we calculate an accurate implied volatility and store it along with the option sensitivities (delta, gamma, vega, and theta). Both European and American models are used as appropriate, with dividend/split adjustments correctly incorporated.

In addition, a standardized constant-maturity volatility surface is calculated for each security every day, including interpolated implied volatilities over a wide range of expirations and moneyness (by delta). You can use our volatility surface to create your own volatility trading strategies, whether simple or complex.

 

Continuous Time Series

Our database handles underlying symbol changes, dividend payments, and split/spinoff adjustments for you automatically. A permanent ID is associated with each instrument (equity, index, or option) to allow it to be easily tracked over time even when the option symbol, strike price or deliverables change. We also include a record of underlying security name and ticker changes, to allow you to easily search for options on securities either no longer trade or trade under a new ticker symbol.

 

Daily Updates

IvyDB US is updated daily to incorporate new end-of-day prices in all the equity and option exchanges we follow. A daily patch file is also provided which contains corrections to previous prices or calculations when needed. Your IvyDB database is always current and ready to use.
