Great news for investors from Europe, Asia and other parts of the world.
CBOE announced extended hours trading time for SPX and VIX Options. These Options start trading from 2 am Eastern US time. Check image below for details.
More details will be available in the days ahead, especially regarding the "fungability" on contracts (which should be a give, or else it won't make sense). Meaning if you buy SPX Options at 2 am ET, you should be able to sell those same Options at 10 am ET. There may be small differences. Stay tuned, and we'll update on this Blog.
