The CME Group (Chicago Mercantile Exchange) will be adding Monday Weekly futures options for the Emini S&P 500.
Set to launch on April 3, 2017, futures options traders will now have greater precision and flexibility in controlling risk and/or speculative trading.
The addition of Monday weekly options on the Emini S&P 500 futures contract will provide additional market liquidity, especially during event driven situations such as major economic reports, unemployment reports and national elections.
As an example, following the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, trading volume soared in the Wednesday and Friday weekly options to over 380,000 emini S&P 500 option contracts.
S&P 500 and E-mini S&P 500 Monday Weekly options on futures will be available for trading beginning April 3. The addition of Monday Weekly options provides you with the opportunity to fine-tune your trading strategies, particularly ahead of market-moving events and reports like the upcoming French election. New Monday options will trade like existing Wednesday and Friday Weekly Index options, but they will expire on Mondays.
- Available on standard and E-mini S&P 500 futures
- European-style expiration
- Initial expirations available: April 17, April 24, May 1, May 8; following the initial listing, two expirations will be available at any time
