The fact of the matter is that there is not a lot of publicly available data on derivatives markets.  In order to make what is available more accessible, and at the same time to illustrate the limited range of available data, the Derivatives Study Center put together the following "Databases" and "Data Links" to information on derivatives markets.


The following databases are spreadsheets prepared by the Derivatives Study Center in order to facilitate the use of available derivatives data in analytical studies and the preparation of charts.  The data is from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the U.S. Treasury's Office of Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).  If you have access to Excel, then just click on the links below; or if you use other spreadsheet applications then right-click on the link, save to your disk and then open in your preferred application.


The following links are to the original sources of data from the BIS, OCC or the British Bankers Association.  There are additional sites, and some are included in the database entitled "DSC Database on Derivatives in Developing Countries."
