Product Summary

Markit Pricing Data provides implied volatilities, forwards and discount factors out to a maximum of 10 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.

The composite volatility curves are produced based on the closing option prices from major sellside institutions. These curves provide a consistent and comprehensive dataset with an emphasis on high quality.
