These options are governed by Exchange Chapters XXIVA and XXIVB. Under current CBOE Rules 24A.4 and 24B.4, FLEX Options may not expire on any business day that falls on, or within two business days of, a third Friday-of-the-month expiration day for any Non-FLEX Option (an ‘‘Expiration Friday’’).4 However, subject to certain aggregation requirements for cash settled options, the current FLEX Rules do permit the expiration of FLEX Options on the same day that Non-FLEX or FLEX Equity Options. FLEX Index Options are index options that are subject to the FLEX rules in Chapters XXIVA or XXIVB of the CBOE Rules. FLEX Index Options Series may be approved and open for trading on any index that has been approved for Non-FLEX Options trading or for warrant trading on the Exchange. FLEX Equity Options are options on specified equity securities that are subject to the FLEX rules in Chapters XXIVA or XXIVB of the CBOE Rules. FLEX Equity Options may be on underlying securities that have been approved by the Exchange in accordance with CBOE Rule 5.3, which includes but is not limited to stock options and exchange-traded fund options. In addition, other products are permitted to be traded pursuant to the FLEX trading procedures. For example, credit options are eligible for trading as FLEX Options pursuant to the FLEX rules in Chapters XXIVA and XXIVB. See CBOE Rules 24A.1(e) and (f), 24A.4(b)(1) and (c)(1), 24B.1(f) and (g), 24B.4(b)(1) and (c)(1), and 28.19. 4 For example, under the current rule, a FLEX option could expire on the Tuesday before Expiration Friday, but could not expire on the Wednesday or Thursday before Expiration Friday. Similarly, a FLEX option could expire on the Wednesday after Expiration Friday, but could not expire on the Monday or Tuesday after Expiration Friday. This restriction is hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘three business day’’ expiration restriction. E:\FR\FM\15DEN1.SGM 15DEN1
