That's correct I'm retrieving all available data for the symbol mentioned above and was surprised to see data going back to 1999:

I wasn't sure how to interpret these data points.

Hi

I'm getting data on the symbol AAPL1221A120 some 13 years before the expiry date. Is this correct?

My interpretation of the symbol is it's:

base symbol=AAPL
expiry=2012-01-21,
right=call,
strike=120.0

More generally, what date does your options coverage (daily granularity) start from?

Thanks
Andrew
