CBOE Adds More Volatility Options

The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) is further expanding its suite of volatility products with the addition of options contracts on the CBOE Nasdaq-100 Volatility Index (CBOE: VXN) and the CBOE Russell 2000 Volatility Index (CBOE: RVX). The contracts are set to start trading on September 27 and will be listed, of course, on the CBOE.

Options on the CBOE’s original volatility index, the CBOE VIX, have been trading since February 2006, and nearly 20 million contracts have traded since launch.

Futures contracts on the VXN, RVX, VIX and other CBOE volatility indexes already trade on the CBOE Futures Exchange. The futures contract based on the RVX saw volumes of nearly 6,000 contracts in August, its first full month of trading, a record for new products on the exchange.
