Any ways to speed up large number of symbols with options data?

I am working on an algo which requires getting equities' IV once a day at the end of the trading day. The suggestion I received told me to save a copy of the `slice` received in OnData and deal with its data in the scheduled event. Problem is - I also need IV (and potentially greeks) and just running it naively without any logic takes a lot of time when 100 of ETFs is tracked.

To be fair - server appears to process a lot of data and quite quick. It is just amount of data pumped for each minute is astronomical. I wonder how it can be optimized.

What I really need at this time is IV of single ATM CALL and OTM PUT for 7 days before making a decision. And then wait for 4 weeks.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Hi Pavel.

Selecting relatively few options, using SetOptionFilter, in comparison to choosing many options can shorten the deployment time. I've attached a backtest where I demonstrate how to retrieve the implied volatility for options that are in the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJIA) at the end of each day when markets are open.

The DataFrame IV is populated with implied volatility value from the At-The-Money (ATM) Call options contract, for each stock, given the filtration criteria in SetFilter. It is possible to retrieve a 7-day history of implied volatility for each stock, by using IV.tail(7), as demonstrated in the code. I've printed out the implied volatility values to the attached log file. Similarly, this method can be used to retrieve implied volatility values for Out-Of-The-Money (OTM) Puts. Also, I've demonstrated how it is possible to print the value of the greeks, each day, for the symbol WMT, to the attached log file.
