Pending regulatory review, the trading week for VIX futures at CFE will begin each Sunday at 5:00 p.m. CT and end on Friday at 3:15 p.m. CT.  CFE will close for 15 minutes between 3:15 p.m. CT and 3:30 p.m. CT on Monday through Thursday, when no trading will be transacted. The new trading day on those days will then begin at 3:30 p.m. CT.

"VIX has become a recognized proxy for global market volatility. Now VIX futures customers around the world -- including investment banks, proprietary trading firms, hedge funds, CTAs and issuers of exchange traded products – will have the ability  to trade VIX futures virtually around the clock and to react immediately to events affecting global markets," CBOE Holdings CEO Edward T. Tilly said. "We have been very encouraged by the incremental volume and diverse number of users now trading VIX futures outside of regular U.S. trading hours."

Just under eight percent of the average daily volume in VIX futures was transacted outside of regular U.S. trading hours this year through February.
