“The launch of the Cboe One Options Feed aims to address the growth of the U.S. options market, which has seen the emergence of a new generation of investors that is increasingly utilizing options-based strategies in their portfolios.”
Cboe Global Markets has announced the upcoming launch of consolidated, real-time U.S. options pricing through a single market data feed, effective March 1, 2023, subject to regulatory approval.
The Cboe One Options Feed will publish aggregated BBO of all displayed orders for securities traded on Cboe’s four options exchanges as the largest U.S. options exchange operator aims to meet investor demand for a cost-effective alternative to existing offerings.
The four U.S. options exchanges – the Cboe Options, C2 Options, EDGX Options and BZX Options Exchanges – together account for approximately 31 percent of all U.S. options trading volume and collectively, can provide a representative view into U.S. options trading.
By aggregating the best bid and offer (BBO) of all displayed orders for equity, ETF, and index options traded on the four exchanges, the Cboe One Options Feed will deliver real-time quote and trade information to customers.
Cboe One Options Feed covers 1/3 of all US options trading volume
