Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Update Frequency of CBOE Indexes

Hello everyone,

How frequently does CBOE update and transmit the prices for the following CBOE indexes (not the futures or Options of these indexes, the actually indexes themselves)?

VIX
VXO
SPX

I ask because I downloaded historical intraday tick data for these three indexes into Sierrachart (from Sierrachart's servers) and the prices seem to only update once a minute.

Does this mean CBOE only updates and transmits their prices once per minute?

If you are not subscribing to the CBOE data then you are not getting real time data. The VIX futures could not change by the second/millisecond if the cash changes by the minute. You need to subscribe to real time data.

There is a substantial risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
