CHICAGO, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OneChicago, LLC (OCX), an equity finance exchange, today announced February 2014 volume of 735,214. OneChicago is a CFTC and SEC regulated exchange offering Single Stock Futures (SSF), a delta one product, on approximately 1,500 equities, including ADRs and ETFs.   

OneChicago (OCX) is an equity finance exchange providing a marketplace for trading security futures and the related exchange for physical (EFP).

"We are very excited by the surge in the EFP volumes that we saw in February of this year versus the 2013 levels with activity jumping just over 861%," said David Downey, CEO at OneChicago.  "This is a phenomenal development as the marketplace begins to embrace the true benefit of the single stock future product, which is replacing a relatively expensive equity position with a cheaper economic equivalent in an integrated transaction, avoiding any market execution risk.  This Delta One substitution, similar to OTC swaps, is the value proposition that we have been promoting."

February 2014 highlights include:

  • Open interest stood at 640,035 contracts on the equity finance exchange at close-of-market, February 28, 2014

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud platforms and applications and that nearly half of large enterprises will have cloud deployments by the end of 2017.

While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...
