Price and Roll Data

Cboe provides a number of benchmark indexes designed to show the hypothetical performance of options-based strategies. The Cboe S&P 500 BuyWrite Index (BXM), for example, is a benchmark index that holds the S&P 500 stocks and sells one-month cash-settled S&P 500 options on the third-Friday "roll" date. Data regarding the third-Friday "roll" dates and the long-term historical prices for Cboe benchmark indexes is available at the links to the left.
