Historical market data includes end-of-day bid and ask prices, last sale prices, volume, and daily high/low prices. Subsequent additions to the system will provide historical intra-day tick and Options Price Reporting Authority (OPRA) time-and-sales data, and historical information dating back 33 years to CBOE's creation of the listed options market in 1973.
