2-Year, 5-Year, 10-Year, T-Bond and Ultra T-Bond Weekly Options
Expanding the Range of Standardized, Short-Dated Options
The addition of Weekly Options on U.S. Treasury futures means that there will be an option expiring every Friday in benchmark Treasury products. This enables targeted trading based on market movements or events occurring in specific time frames.
Weekly Treasury Options:
Complement the standard options and the Flexible Options on U.S. Treasury futures
Provide users with increased flexibility in managing existing option positions
Offer new opportunities to trade high impact economic events such as Treasury auctions and economic reports
Expire every Friday that is not already a quarterly or serial Treasury option expiration
Exercise into the next quarterly futures expiry
Same strike price intervals and minimum tick sizes as the serial and quarterly options
Trade via open outcry and electronically on CME Globex
New weekly option listed the business day following an expiration
