CBOE Futures Exchange’s extended hours to begin in late September

RELATED TOPICS​

The first phase of CBOE Futures Exchange’s plans to expand CBOE Volatility Index (VIX index) futures trading hours will begin in late September, with the second phase to begin in the weeks that follow.

 
The first phase of the expanded trading hours initiative is designed to meet demand from US customers for a post-settlement trading period by adding a 45-minute trading session to the current trading hours for VIX futures (7:00 am CT to 3:15 pm CT).
 
Fifteen minutes after the 3:15 pm CT close of VIX futures, the market will reopen for a new trading period from 3:30 pm CT to 4:15 pm CT. Trading will then resume at 7:00 am CT the following morning.
 
The new 45-minute period, which marks the beginning of the next trading day, will be available from Monday through Thursday.
 
The second phase of the expanded trading hours initiative will allow European-based customers to trade VIX futures during their local trading hours by beginning the current trading session five hours earlier than its current opening time of 7:00 am CT.
 
Trading will begin at 2:00 am CT (8:00 am London time).  
 
The new five-hour period, which precedes the current trading hours, will be available from Monday through Friday.
 
With both expanded trading periods in place, VIX futures trading hours will run from 2:00 am CT through 3:15 pm CT, Monday through Friday, with the 3:30 pm CT to 4:15 pm CT session available Monday through Thursday.
 
No trading is scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays in either of the phases.
 
The changes are subject to regulatory review.
