comment Bloomberg equity option volatility data
I don't think there is one field for that. I suspect you would have to get the volatility for several options (various strikes/maturity) and draw the surface from that data. HELP HELP on Bloomberg may know better.

comment Bloomberg equity option volatility data
The easiest way to find a field is to go to a ticker you are interested in on a terminal, say SPY US 02/20/15 P200 Equity <Go> and then type FLDS VOLATILITY: you will see a page with a list of fields related to volatility.

comment How can I export intraday frequency data from Bloomberg and (how) is this procedure different than for lower frequencies?
If you managed to get daily data there is no reason you can't get intraday data. Can you post the formula you are using?

comment Bloomberg Pricing Sources: TRAC vs. BGN vs. BVAL etc
TRAC only reports trace eligible trades (see TRAC <Go> for more info). BGN is indeed an old version of BVAL. For more info on BVAL: BVLI <Go>. HELP HELP should be able to give you that information too.

comment where to find historical option prices?
Bloomberg coverage and reliability (at least on market data, i.e. actual traded prices) are fine. Calculated analytics or greeks may or may not be what you are after as they are model based.

comment evaluating portfolio performance without knowing the amount held on cash accounts
@Noobie You need to make an assumption on leverage / cash held, for example by using an average number if that is a fairly stable metrics. For example, if it's a long only strategy, you could consider that the strategy is always 100% invested.
