Options trading hours shortened by 2 minutes:

Discussion in 'Options' started by Rearden Metal, Feb 9, 2006.

Options markets will now close at 4:00 ET, not 4:02 ET. Is this a good idea?

    9:12 ISE Int'l Securities Exchange to change mkt trading hours (39.17 )

    Co announces the following change to its trading schedule for equity options, effective Monday, Feb 13, 2006. Options on equities, narrow-based (sector) indexes and narrow-based ETFs will close for trading at 4:00 p.m. (ET). This is an industry-wide change and reflects a 2-minute reduction in the current trading session to align options trading with the closing time of the primary mkt.

    What actual implications does this have?

    What I want is penny pricing, instead of
    getting nickel and dimed.
