Weekly and Quarterly Options

Active Weekly Options Summary

The options exchanges list equity and index options (including ETF options) that have series that are approximately one to five weeks to expiration following their initial listing. These options are called "Weekly Options" or "Weeklys". Because these options have such a short expiry, the options exchanges have the ability to list different series from week to week, but please note that Weeklys are not eligible to be listed for each and every week of a month. For the convenience of market participants, OCC publishes a list of newly added and newly delisted Weekly Option Products that have been processed through OCC's internal series listing application. These series are in the weekly program for the next eligible weekly expiration. This list is compiled from sources believed reliable, but certain Weeklys could be included in the list or omitted from the list in error. Also, changes in listing decisions by the exchanges may not be immediately known or reflected in the list. You should always check with your brokerage firm or an exchange directly if you have any questions about the availability of any particular Weekly Options Series.

The Weekly Options Spreadsheet has been updated to include two weekly option summary lists. The left list is the most current and applies to weekly Option Products that have series expiring with the next eligible expiration date, highlighted at the top of the table. The right list applies to the previous week's active weekly options. They are presented side-by-side for easy comparison.

Active Quarterly Options Summary

Under the Quarterly Program, an Options Exchange may list Quarterly Options Series (series that expire at the close of business on the last business day of the calendar quarter) for up to five (5) currently listed option classes that are either Index Options or options on Exchange Traded Funds ("ETF").

The Quarterly Eligibility Report contains the most current listing of all active quarterly options that are in this program. The report contains option symbol, option name and effective date when it was added to the program.
