Equity Index Option Volatility Exchange CloseEquity volatility surfaces and forward curves are key ingredients for the pricing of equity-linked derivatives. The IHS Markit OTC Derivatives Data product publishes volatility surfaces for all major global equity indices along with the corresponding forward curve.

Volatility skews are published for exchange expiries spanning from 1W up to 10Y/20Y maturity, depending on the underlying index. The spot, implied dividend yields and discount factors are also published to provide a comprehensive data set. Data are typically sampled for a set of predefined strikes relative to the spot level.
