Trading Hours and Holidays

Cboe offers call and put options on a variety of securities, including stock indexes, volatility indexes, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), exchange traded notes (ETNs) and thousands of publicly listed stocks. Trading hours and holidays for many Cboe products are somewhat similar to those of many major US stock exchanges, except that, for example, the trading in some stock index options contracts continues until 3:15 pm Chicago time. The Contract Specifications page has links with more details re: specifications and trading hours.

Global Trading Hours

In 2014 Cboe Futures Exchange began offering almost around-the-clock trading of futures on the popular Cboe Volatility Index® (VIX®), and in March 2015 Cboe launched global trading hours for options on VIX and SPX. Visit for more details.
