    CHICAGO, May 19, 2005 — As part of its initiative for increasing the volume of electronic trading for options on foreign exchange, equity indexes and interest rates, CME, the largest futures exchange in the U.S., today announced the new CME-Certified Options Partner Program listed below.

    because euronext have failed to address the problems of moving options from floor to screen their flagship euribor options product has begun to reap the consequences.....................

    Figures published by the FIA for the first 5 months of 2005

    "Outside of the U.S., interest rate trading was virtually flat, up 2.0% to 579.0 million contracts, with futures up 3.7% to 517.7 million contracts and options down 10.7% to 61.4 million. Euribor futures, the flagship product at Euronext.liffe, declined 4.1% to 66.9 million, and options on Euribor futures plunged 49.6% to 16.5 million."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    hopefully cme & cbot will learn from liffes mistakes and not destroy their optons contracts in the same way.

    I might be reading the CME stuff wrong but couldnt you just do alot of 1 lots to boost your trade to cancel ratio? If you buy 50 options and are ready to get out of em just sell em back 1 at a time. Wait, this would probably not be worth it due to commish. nevermind. jim
