The Chicago Board Options Exchange Holdings (CBOE, NASDAQ: CBOE) has just reported its trading volumes for the month ending August 2017, which saw a notable advance in key segments, according to a CBOE statement.
During August 2017, CBOE Holdings disclosed a total trading volume for options contracts on CBOE and Bats exchanges at 161.85 million, up 30.7 percent year-on-year from 123.87 million contracts back in August 2016.
