President’s Day Trading Schedule for VIX Futures

Holiday trading schedules for the most part are….. well, boring.   For example, Information Circulars used to tell us tidbits like Presidents Day we’re closed for trading, see you Tuesday.

Holiday trading hours in the future will be a little more interesting.   On Monday, February 17th the U.S. Exchanges are pretty much closed, but VIX Futures at the CFE will be open on Monday Feb. 17th from 2:00am until 10:30am.

Trades in VIX futures made during a holiday trading session or extended hours are submitted for clearing for the next business day, so these will appear as 2/18 trades. All other CFE products are closed on Presidents Day.

Pay attention to e-mails from exchanges In the future,there could be a useful tidbit in there.
