It sure would be good to see data for the emini (ES and NQ) weekly (and end of month) options, which have been trading for more than a year. Here's a blurb from the CME website.

Hi nberman,

The weekly options are something we are looking into currently. We don’t have estimates as to when they will be available. But hopefully it will be sometime this spring or summer.

We have added the ES weekly options and they are now available within IQFeed. The root symbol is @EW1, @EW2, @EW4 (currenly only trading symbols would be and @EW4, and @EW1). @EW2 will be available once @EW4 expires.

We are still working to add the NQ weekly options. They will be available soon.

The format would be: @EW1K11C134500 for a CALL as an example. @EW1K11P124500 would be the format for a PUT.

You can find the symbol on our website using the Symbol Search. Enter @EW1 (for example) into the search field, then choose "Symbol" in Search By. You can also choose "Future Option" in the security type filter. This will give you all Week 1 options.
