Comprehensive European Option Pricing Data, Volatility, & Analytics
IvyDB Europe covers over 900 optionable securities (equities and indices), from all major European exchanges, including the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, and Italy. Historical data and daily updates are available for most securities since January 2002. The data includes daily option pricing information (settlement prices), our own dividend projections, and all historical distributions and corporate actions, such as splits, mergers, and name changes.
We match each option price with the security price for accurate implied volatility and greeks calculations along with the option sensitivities (delta, gamma, vega, and theta). 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 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 search with ease for options on securities that either no longer trade or trade under a new ticker symbol.
IvyDB Europe 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.
