NYSE Euronext announced Monday that one of its U.S. options exchanges, NYSE Amex Options, has completed its transition to a new trading floor.

The new facility is adjacent to the New York Stock Exchange equities trading floor and is comprised of two adjoining rooms with new trading pits. The firm said that options traders and customers will benefit from the enhanced speed, order executions and capacity improvements of its trading technology.

“Opening the new NYSE Amex options trading floor is a significant achievement for us and a milestone in the integration of our second U.S. options trading facility,” said Ed Boyle, senior vice president, NYSE Euronext US options. “Adding the expertise and customer-focused approach of the NYSE Amex options traders and staff gives NYSE Euronext a new, complementary self-regulatory organization as well as the unique ability to leverage our multi-asset exchange model to another important customer segment.”
