I've noticed that sometimes, when I download the HISTORY for an OPTION symbol on a recent day (lets say for GOOG and BAC data). If I download the same history 2 or 3 days later, the data may be different.

I download this data for: GOOG1626N695

I completely understand there may be changes, but my real question is, when can I consider the HISTORICAL options data "final" and not expected to change? Is there a hard and fast rule to use? X days later?

Hi Larry,

It is likely that this is related to the difference in feeds between our data centers. Bid and ask data is not sent to us in line with the trades for equity data, so there will be differences in our historical records just due to the varying latency at different locations.

Tim

Thanks for the quick reply Tim.

The BID/ASK was the first example I used, but the more important one is the updated trade (see second example). The volume ends up being different, and a trade was added. To me, it seems like this happens often. I can show you a hundred or so examples. Here is another: IWM1626N99:

So I am wondering when I can trust the data is complete and won't change.

Larry, this particular instance would also be explained by multiple server farms having different data. Each of our server farms operate independently from one another. This means that each has its own feed from the exchanges and separate processing.

While normally the feeds from the exchange match, problems do occur and there might be slight discrepancies in the data as processing recovers and switches from primary to backup. As a result, on the weekends we have a process that runs to consolidate historical data across all our server farms so it matches.

As a result, the following monday would be safe as far as this type of discrepancy is concerned however, the exchange can send corrections for any day at any time (we even receive corrections for data beyond our 180 day storage limit on occasion). Additionally, if our market data team determines that data is wrong, they will make corrections as needed. Unfortunately, this means that there never really is a "complete and won't change" date that I can give you.
