NYSE Liffe to launch equity options on Mediq
NYSE Liffe will be introducing American-style options on the shares of the Dutch company Mediq from 6 October 2009.
The new options will expire on the third Friday of the contract month and will have initial lifetimes of one, two, three, six and nine months.
Each Mediq option will represent 100 shares in Mediq and will be cleared via LCH.Clearnet.
Liquidity in the options will be supported by All Options (PMM) and trading will take place on Liffe Connect.
The market for Mediq options will be supported by the full screen central market model pioneered in Amsterdam, and used in Brussels, London and Paris. This model gives investors access to competitive prices throughout the trading day by ensuring a constant display of bid and offer prices.
Alan van Griethuysen, business head Benelux and Asia of NYSE Liffe, says: “With the listing of options on Mediq we are expanding our successful Dutch equity option section. This section offers investors the possibility to invest in a wide range of sectors and covers all AEX-index constituents and most of the Amsterdam Midkap-index constituents.”
