|CBOE has launched CBOEdirect HyTS, the Hybrid Trading System. CBOE's revolutionary hybrid trading platform incorporates the speed and efficiencies of a screen-based trading system with the liquidity and price discovery of a competitive, open outcry marketplace. CBOEdirect HyTS effectively provides a unique "best of both worlds" trading environment, unprecedented in the options industry. |
CBOEdirect HyTS offers powerful new features to maximize market speed and efficiency, including:
CBOEdirect HyTS allows in-crowd market makers to input real-time, streaming quotes reflecting their individualized trading interest. CBOE will disseminate the best bid and offer from all market participants, resulting in tighter, deeper markets that can be accessed electronically by customers.
Along with our partner, Belzberg Technologies, CBOE offers the HyTS Terminal - a universal, multifunctional trading solution workstation. Through this terminal, or other point and click technology available in the marketplace, customer, firm and non-market maker Broker-Dealer orders will be afforded automatic execution against displayed quotes and size.
CBOEdirect HyTS for the first time allows for the "opening of the book" to certain types of B/D orders. Accordingly, these firm and non-market maker B/D orders will be eligible for placement into the electronic book against which they may be executed electronically.
The CBOEdirect HyTS unique matching algorithm retains public customer priority. Additionally, market participants are rewarded based on a formula that balances the concepts of quoting the best price with providing larger size markets at the best price.
CBOE believes that there is value in the face-to-face, open outcry marketplace, particularly superior price discovery that allows for price improvement. With CBOEdirect HyTS, trading crowds will continue to offer price improvement to orders of size, complex orders, and other orders that are exposed to the open outcry, auction market. This is a significant advantage not available in an exclusively screen-based environment.
For trading desks, CBOE offers the HyTS terminal, a multi-functional universal access trading solution. Powered by Belzberg Technologies, Inc., CBOE's workstation technology partner, the HyTS terminal provides trading desks with point & click electronic access to CBOE markets, as well as order routing capabilities to other options, stock, and futures exchanges. In the HyTS terminal, CBOE offers the trading community the most sophisticated order submission, routing, and management technology available today.
The HyTS Terminal provides CBOE customers with electronic access and order routing to U.S. options, futures, and stock exchanges, as well as complete access to market data, streaming quotes and order management-all on a single screen.
