March 31, 2022 - The CME has announced it will expand its suite of Micro E-mini S&P 500 options with the launch of Tuesday and Thursday Weekly options on April 25, pending regulatory review.

"As demand for additional short-dated equity options continues to grow, we are expanding the number of weekly expiries to allow our clients to hedge or trade with enhanced flexibility and precision around major market-moving events," said Tim McCourt, CME Group Global Head of Equity and FX Products. "The addition of Tuesday and Thursday Weekly options also builds on our longstanding partnership with S&P Dow Jones Indices and provides another way for traders to access our deep, liquid underlying E-mini S&P 500 futures markets."

"S&P Dow Jones Indices and CME Group share a deep commitment to strengthen market accessibility and transparency through independent indices such as the S&P 500," said** Aye Soe, Global Head of Core and Multi-Asset Product Management at S&P Dow Jones Indices**. "As the S&P 500 marks its 65th year in 2022, it remains widely regarded as the best single gauge of the large-cap U.S. equity market with more than $13 trillion in assets indexed or benchmarked to it. Through CME Group's latest launch, S&P DJI is proud to license the S&P 500 to CME Group to expand the ecosystem of financial instruments tracking this iconic and historic benchmark."

Interest and trading activity around E-mini S&P 500 options continues to grow. Year-to-date, E-mini S&P 500 Monday, Wednesday and Friday Weekly options average daily volume is 841,214 contracts, representing a 75% increase year-over-year.
