Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Prior to buying or selling an option, a person must receive a copy of Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options. Copies are available from your broker or at www.theocc.com. Futures trading is not suitable for all investors, and involves risk of loss. Futures and options on Cboe’s volatility indexes have several unique features that distinguish them from most equity and index options, and investors are strongly encouraged to closely read and understand the ODD and the VIX options FAQ at http://www.cboe.com/micro/vix/vixoptionsfaq.aspx and other informational material before investing.
