Over the last months, our option exchange has become significantly more liquid. As this was happening, we received an increased number of customer queries about longer dated options. This is why we decided to introduce the December option yesterday. The underlying of this contract will be our index.
From now on, we will have at least one option with a minimum maturity of 6 months. This means we will launch a March ’19 option before the end of September.
We also increase the ticksize from 0.1 to 0.5 USD to make the order books easier to see. The ticksize from the options went from USD 0.0001 to USD 0.0005.
