UPDATE: *CBOE: CFE WILL OPEN THE VX FUTURE PRODUCT AT 8:10 AM CT

It would appear that the overnight melt-up exuberance of an optimistic investing public has been stymied as the exchanges break once again. Following record volume levels on VIX options this week, we are told this morning by CBOE:

  • *CBOE: CFE EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL ISSUES
  • *CBOE: CFE EXPECTING DELAYED OPENING FOR THE VX
  • *CBOE:CFE WILL BUST ERRANT VX, VXT TRADES FROM 7:00-7:12:01 CT

SSDD... Let's hope Jack Lew has something positive to say and doesn't "surprise" an unhedged market.
