The PHLX’s Semiconductor Sector (SOX) Index Option has become one of the most actively traded sector index options offered by any exchange, and it serves as a widely quoted benchmark of the high-tech industry. Additionally, the Oil Service Sector (OSX) is the industry’s most successful new sector index option. Furthermore, the PHLX’s Gold/Silver Sector (XAU), KBW Bank Sector (BKX) and Utility Sector (UTY) are established in a highly competitive environment of other indices as leading industry indicators.

In perhaps one of the most important innovations since listed currency options themselves, the PHLX has created a unique market structure for the trading of currency options. Titled the United Currency Options Market (UCOM), it provides unprecedented flexibility and the availability of both standardized and customized currency options. Customized currency options offer choice of expiration date, strike (exercise) price, premium payment and any combination of 10 currencies currently available for a total of 100 possible currency pairs.
