The options products listed with and subject to the rules andregulations of NYMEX and COMEX will be available for trading on CME Globex, andfor submission for clearing through CME ClearPort.

The exchange's Chicago trading floor will remain open for bothoptions and futures trading. The New York floor's closing is subject to review bythe Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
