Sick and tired of paying high prices for historical option data? Or have been hesitant to buy historical option data because it is not so cheap as you found out?

Our mission at discountoptiondata.com is to provide the most affordable end-of-day historical option data to consumers ever! Instead of paying thousands of dollars for historical option data from elsewhere we offer the whole dataset from 2003 up to today for just a few hundred dollars.

We also absolutely don’t care if you are an individual investor or a rich hedge fund, you all pay the same guaranteed lowest price. We simply just refuse to rip you off like other financial data companies just because we think you can afford it.
