Pump Up The Volume!


Forget the bulls and the bears. In this crazy market it seems the exchanges are coming out on top, with volatility driving volumes to new levels.

And it seems more and more investors are turning to the Chicago Board Options Exchange to make the trade. In 2008, CBOE trading volume exceeded one billion contracts for the first time ever.

And the exchange just made another record. In March 2009 the CBOE recorded its best March ever.

Could an IPO be on the horizon? Find out from CBOE CEO Bill Brodsky. Watch the video now!
