Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) has
formed two new indices: the CBOE Euro 25 Index
and the CBOE Asia 25 Index began trading last Monday. Both
indices were created to measure the performance of large
market-capitalisation companies in their regions, giving stock
index investors more international choices. The indices are
composed of 25 actively traded American depository receipts
(ADRs), New York registered shares (NYSs) or NYSE Global Shares
(NGSs) traded on US securities exchanges. CBOE will calculate
and disseminate the index values continuously throughout the
trading day and the options will trade during regular US
trading hours only.
New York Board of Trade set a new
open interest record on its coffee "C" futures
market at 79,607, on 28 March. The previous
record was achieved three days earlier at 78,853 contracts.
Each contract is for roughly 250 bags (or 37,500 pounds) of
washed arabica coffee produced in several Central and South
American, Asian and African countries.
