08/02/10

The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) today announced it has re-launched its award-winning website, www.CBOE.com. The new site features faster navigation, richer content and customized features for different types of options investors.

Site enhancements include simplified navigation that guides user groups through the most relevant site content, an interactive Education Center featuring new programs, and a customizable "myCBOE" feature.

"CBOE's new website builds on the previous success of CBOE.com, which I'm pleased to say is recognized as the definitive source for comprehensive options information and education," CBOE Chairman and CEO William J. Brodsky said. "The new enhancements underscore our ongoing commitment to provide state-of-the-art options education for options investors of every level." 

The new CBOE.com includes expanded educational content provided by the CBOE Options Institute, this year celebrating its 25th anniversary. New features in the Education Center include Options Institute Plus, a comprehensive, guided option education program that helps students of all knowledge levels improve their options investment skills; three state-of-the-art virtual trading tools that let investors test their trading strategies; and OptionQuestSM, an online game that challenges investors' options knowledge and helps them sharpen their trading skills. In addition, the Education Center provides an interactive "Education Snapshot" tool that lets visitors automatically monitor their educational progress. 

Other new features at CBOE.com include an enhanced "myCBOE" module, which allows users to personalize their information and to display their favorite features, such as quotes and calendars, on one easy-to-access page. 

The site also now includes an improved quotes section that incorporates advanced charts, market news and a comprehensive view of stock and option "most actives" and "gainers/losers." Additionally, a new Equity Research Center provides corporate earnings announcements, webcasts, analyst revisions, and dividends and guidance information and allows investors to input and monitor personal portfolio information.

CBOE.com has received "Best of the Web" honors from Forbes successively since the inception of the award in 2001.
