BRIEFLY

January 07, 1988

The Chicago Board of Trade is considering an earlier start to trading of Treasury bonds and notes, hoping to attract more foreign business. A spokesman said the board is studying overlapping with the business day in Europe and may add a session from 4 to 6 a.m. Trading of U.S. Treasury bonds and notes futures now begins at 8 a.m. CST. Last April, the board launched a 6 to 9 p.m. night trading session on bonds and notes to coincide with the business day in the Far East; volume has averaged 16,000 contracts nightly.
