With CBOE. They send the data to clients via a CORBA network.
You should check into what it costs to become a data subscriber.
Might be too expensive. Check with other providers too. You
probably cannot afford Bloomberg. But maybe Reuters or
another provider. Free data is only useful if you are
doing longer term trading. Holding for a few days at
a time. Otherwise, you had better rely on some pay
