CBOE), a leading provider of global market infrastructure and
tradable products, announced that it will re-open floor trading of
options on the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) on Wednesday, December 28.
On Tuesday, the VIX trading pit on the Cboe trading floor was

options were traded in electronic-only mode while open outcry
trading was unavailable.

(RUT), SPDR ETF (SPY), and all equity options trading crowd spaces
have not been impacted and continue to be available for both their
