Options Price History
How far back do options pricing history go? For some reason it only goes back 2 days or up to a month for some. I have the live options price service on. Thanks Bruce!
The amount of data available depends on when somebody actually first traded that option. So if it has been trading longer, it will have more data available.
Some options (LEAPS) are long term options which will end up with more history, but most are not.
I notice that thinkorswim gives me more data for 1 min interval (up to 30 days back) but it looks like you guys only have it up to 1 day back? I'm trying to get the richest data source possible, thanks!
You should have 1500 bars of data when the market opens and 1890 bars of data once the market has closed each day for most stocks.
That certainly isn't 30 days, but if you are only getting 1 day of data, you may want to contact technical support.
There is no workaround within TC2000 to extend this data further.
