TRADING HOURS

Upon migration, we expect to change trading hours for VX so there will be a post-settlement session from 3:30–4:00PM for the same business day, and trading in VX and VXT for the next business day will open at 5:00PM, rather than at 3:30PM, as it is today.

 Trading hours are set separately for each product and are listed as Central Time (CT).
