IVOLATILITY.COM DATA PRODUCTS
We develop several data products that are designed to meet different trading needs.
Implied Volatility Index(IVX). This is a proprietary volatility index that we designed and now calculate daily and intra day (check IVX Monitor on home page or IVGraph service). This index gives a measure of a stocks expected volatility based on weighted at-the-money volatilities. The IVX is calculated for 6 different maturities. It is a great tool for volatility studies looking for a single volatility value as well as studies reviewing historic stock volatility and mean reversal principles among others. The IVX product provides historical data for each optionable name on the market.
The Raw IV product provides actual volatility, quotes and Greeks. This is an excellent product for analyzing the shape of the vol curve or back testing your trading ideas.
The Parameterized volatility product incorporates the proprietary smoothing calculations of our raw implied data into a parameterized curve. It is an efficient way to analyze, generally, how in-the-money and out-of the-money options have been priced historically. This is a great tool to incorporate into complex trading and risk management models.
The Risks product offers realized volatility over different time frames as well as correlations and betas. These data sets are typically used for portfolio analysis, VAR calculations, delta hedging and vega risk management.
The IV Feed product provides a variety of options volatility data either realtime or 20 minute delayed. Data can be accessed through either our SDK solution designed for individual traders or through the enterprise Volatility Server application.
