Euronext is trumpeting the introduction of even more expiration months in ranks of certain illiquid stock options. “Supply creates demand” seems to be the spirit at the exchange.

The new short term expiration months will be the first month, a second month and a third month – next to existing the four quarterly expirations. Introduction will be November the 23th.

The following option classes will see the introduction of new expiration months:

Aalberts, BAM, Binck, Boskalis, Fugro, Heijmans, Logica, Océ, SNS, USG, Vopak and the good old Wessanen.

Good luck for all market makers in Vopak. After the weekend you’ll be quoting:

dec ’09, jan ’10, feb ’10, mar ’10, jun’10 and sep’10. Cheers!
