Equity Volatility Data Service

Verify prices with independent daily equity volatility data

IHS Markit provides implied volatilities, forwards and discount factors out to a maximum of ten years for equity indices and five years for single stocks. The strike range runs from 50% to 150% for each maturity, and contributor depth is shown for each tenor and strike for transparency. We produce the composite volatility curves based on the closing option prices from major sell-side institutions. These curves provide a consistent and comprehensive dataset with an emphasis on high-quality equity volatility factors analysis.

Key benefits:

  • Data integrity – Rely on pricing sourced from major sell-side institutions, with rigorous cleaning processes applied
