CBOE Revises Schedule for Expanded VIX Futures Trading

CBOE Holdings Inc., which delayed the expansion of VIX futures trading hours because of the U.S. government shutdown, revealed the process will now take place on Oct. 28 and Nov. 4.

Once both stages are complete, futures on the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index, or VIX, will be available for trading from 3 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. New York time every weekday, with an additional session from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. New York time on Monday through Thursday. CBOE, the biggest U.S. options exchange owner, announced the updated schedule on its website today.
