Historical Option Prices
Often times, option traders not only want to see the historical prices for the stocks but also they want to see the Historical Option Prices for the option contract itself. MarketXLS makes it easy for you to get the historical option prices for a specific option contract by using very simple Excel formulas. In this article, I will explain the way to get historical option prices with MarketXLS functions.
1. To get the EOD Historical Option Prices of a specific option
2. To get the Intraday Option Prices of a specific option for every five-minute interval
The Intraday data with MarketXLS covers all the history of the option contract. The data you see can then be turned into a chart using MarketXLS’s charting system or by using Excel’s inbuilt charts. You can also conditionally format the data to see the spikes in volume at a specific time.
You can find historical option data in a lot of places, but instead of hours searching & inputting, and constantly updating the data use MarketXLS to help your trades. Along with the historical option data MarketXLS gets you live streaming option prices in your Excel cells to track and monitor your trades.

I use MarketXLS to manage my personal portfolio. I can easily pull in stock quotes, betas, and dividends. I also like to access historical closing prices on a particular date. That makes tracking performance easy.

I’m pretty happy with MarketXLS. I can now concentrate on manipulating financial data, valuing stocks and making investment decisions, rather than hacking around with VBA or copying/pasting data from websites.
MarketXLS greatly expanded my ability to analyze investments. MSN Stock Quotes was limited in the number of stock quotes it would handle in one spreadsheet and in the number of variables available. Many of them were worthless.
