Interesting historical research request - requires historical options data.

for SPY or a similar index tracking fund,

I'd like to see charts that average all the contracts for at least a year showing price fluctuations as the contract ages to expiration. Daily data is fine, I guess starting each contract with whatever is ATM.

Anyone curious enough to do this?
