BATS Global Markets to Launch Second U.S. Options Exchange

BATS Global Markets, Inc. filed rules to launch a second options exchange "EDGX Options" with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

EDGX Options will be based on a customer priority/pro rata allocation model and is designed to complement the existing BATS Options market, which will now be called BZX Options. The launch of EDGX Options will enable BATS to compete for a new segment of order flow that does not trade on the price-time markets that BATS currently operates.
