It seems as if we just got back to a full work schedule, and we have a long weekend coming up.
This Friday, Jan. 16th is Expiration Friday with regular trading hours for all products at CBOE, C2 and CFE. On Monday January 19th, CBOE and C2 are closed for business, so there will be no Stock, ETF or Index option trading on that date. Regular trading will resume Tuesday morning.
On Sunday evening Jan. 18th, CFE opens its extended trading session at 5:00pm CST for VIX (VX) and VXT Futures and will close at 10:30am Monday. Extended hours trading begins again with regular hours starting Monday evening, opening at 5:00pm and closing at 8:30am Tuesday morning. Monday evening's session will have regular hours. Trades in both the Sunday and Monday extended sessions will be submitted for clearing on the Business Day of Tuesday, January 20, 2015. Trading will be closed for all CFE products other than VIX futures on Monday, January 19, 2015.
To recap, regular trading hours on Expiration Friday 1/16 on everything. No option trading Monday, Jan. 19th at CBOE or C2. Abbreviated trading in extended hours sessions at CFE Sunday night and Monday night for VIX (all trades clear in Tuesday session). Have a good Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
