The floor reopening was previously scheduled for Monday, June 8, 2020. The decision to postpone the reopening is in light of closures across the city of Chicago and limited access to the area surrounding the Cboe building. Cboe is continuing to monitor the situation closely.
Trading on C1, Cboe’s hybrid open outcry and electronic exchange, has been available in an electronic-only trading mode since March 16, 2020, and will continue to be fully electronic. Upon the trading floor reopening, C1 will revert to its hybrid trading mode.
