CHICAGO, Dec. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Cboe Global Markets, Inc. (Cboe: CBOE), a leading provider of global market infrastructure and tradable products, announced that options on the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) will trade electronic-only today. The transition to electronic-only trading for VIX options is the result of the temporary closure of the VIX pit on the Cboe trading floor due to water damage sustained from a burst pipe above the trading floor. The Cboe trading floor will be open and available for all other Cboe Options Exchange products.

As a result of the temporary pit closure, Cboe Volatility Index options (VIX and VIXW) will be available for trading electronic-only, with no open outcry trading, for at least today. The exchange intends to implement contingency plans to relocate the VIX trading pit to an alternate space on the trading floor so that VIX and VIXW options may re-open for floor trading on Wednesday, December 28, alongside electronic trading. An update on the status of the planned VIX pit re-open will be provided later in the day today. 

All other products and areas of the Cboe trading floor, including the S&P 500 Index (SPX and SPXW), Russell 2000 Index (RUT), SPDR ETF (SPY), and all equity options trading crowd spaces are not impacted and will be available for both their regular electronic and open outcry trading. The Cboe Options Exchange is a hybrid market combining open outcry floor trading with electronic trading.
