Settlement Value The exercise-settlement value is calculated using the opening (first) reported sales price in the primary market of each component stock on the last business day (usually a Friday) before the expiration date. If a stock in the index does not open on the day in which the exercise-settlement value is determined, the last reported sales price will be used in calculating the exercise-settlement value. The exercise-settlement amount is equal to the difference between the exercise-settlement value and the exercise price of the option, multiplied by $100. Exercise will result in delivery of cash on the business day following expiration.
Position and Exercise Limits The position and exercise limits are 31,500 contracts on the same side of the market. Position and Exercise limits are subject to change.
