CHICAGO, July 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cboe Global Markets, Inc. (Cboe: CBOE), a leading provider of global market infrastructure and tradable products, today reported June monthly trading volume statistics across its global business lines, and provided guidance for selected revenue per contract/net revenue capture metrics for the second quarter of 2021.
Options The company currently expects RPC for total options for the second quarter of 2021 to be 3 to 4 percent lower than the amounts noted below for the two months ended May 31, 2021, primarily reflecting a higher percentage of volume from multi-listed options, which have a lower RPC. The RPC for both multi-listed and index options for the second quarter is expected to be in line with the respective two-month average noted below.
Futures The RPC for futures in the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be in line with the two-month average noted below.
U.S. Equities – On-Exchange The touched revenue capture for U.S. Equities on-exchange volume for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be 4 to 5 percent below the two-month average noted below, largely due to a shift in the mix of shares traded. The mix shift reflects a higher percentage of shares priced at or above a dollar versus shares priced below a dollar, resulting in higher volume-based rebates in June versus the two-month average. The projected revenue capture for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to exceed the first quarter by 30 to 35 percent.
U.S. Equities – Off-Exchange The touched RPC for U.S. Equities off-exchange volume in the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be in line with the two-month average noted below.
Canadian Equities The revenue capture for Canadian Equities for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be 4 to 5 percent above the two-month average noted below, primarily reflecting a mix shift, with Conditionals accounting for a higher percentage of trading in June.
European Equities The revenue capture for European Equities for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be in line with the two-month average noted below.
Global FX The revenue capture for Global FX for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be in line with the two-month average noted below.
EuroCCP Fee per Trade Cleared The revenue capture for EuroCCP Fee per Trade Cleared for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be in line with the two-month average noted below.
EuroCCP Net Fee per Settlement The revenue capture for EuroCCP Net Fee per Settlement for the second quarter of 2021 is expected to be in line with the two-month average noted below.
These expectations are estimated, preliminary and may change. There can be no assurance that our final RPC for the three months ended June 30, 2021, will not differ materially from these expectations.
The following represents average revenue per contract (RPC) or net capture based on a two-month average and a three-month rolling average, reported on a one-month lag. For Options and Futures, the average RPC represents total net transaction fees recognized for the period divided by total contracts traded during the period for options exchanges: BZX Options, Cboe Options, C2 Options and EDGX Options; futures include contracts traded on Cboe Futures Exchange, LLC (CFE). For U.S. Equities – On-Exchange, "net capture per 100 touched shares" refers to transaction fees less liquidity payments and routing and clearing costs divided by the product of one-hundredth ADV of touched shares on BZX, BYX, EDGX and EDGA and the number of trading days for the period. For U.S. Equities – Off-Exchange, "net capture per 100 touched shares" refers to transaction fees less OMS/EMS costs and clearing costs divided by the product of one-hundredth ADV of touched shares on BIDS Trading and the number of trading days for the period. For Canadian Equities, "net capture per 10,000 touched shares" refers to transaction fees divided by the product of one-ten thousandth ADV of shares for MATCHNow and the number of trading days for the period. For European Equities, "net capture per matched notional value" refers to transaction fees less liquidity payments in British pounds divided by the product of ADNV in British pounds of shares matched on Cboe Europe Equities and the number of trading days. For EuroCCP, "Fee per Trade Cleared" refers to clearing fees divided by number of non-interoperable trades cleared and "Net Fee per Settlement" refers to settlement fees less direct costs incurred to settle divided by the number of settlements executed after netting. For Global FX, "net capture per one million dollars traded" refers to transaction fees less liquidity payments, if any, divided by the Spot and SEF products of one-thousandth of ADNV traded on the Cboe FX Markets and the number of trading days, divided by two, which represents the buyer and seller that are both charged on the transaction. Average transaction fees per contract can be affected by various factors, including exchange fee rates, volume-based discounts and transaction mix by contract type and product type.
