Option-implied Data and Analysis

October 18th, 2020, 9:16 pm

Check it out -- a new OSF data collection of option-implied variables based on several published/ working papers: implied betas, implied correlations, generalized lower bounds for expected excess simple returns, and model-free implied skewness. Very useful if one wants to replicate papers in question!
