NYSE Amex Options, owned by NYSE Euronext, is one of the world's largest options exchanges. It trades options on domestic stocks, American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), broad-based, industry sector and international indexes, exchange traded funds (ETFs), and HOLDRS. In addition to conventional options, it also trades LEAPS and equity and index FLEX options. 
NYSE Amex Options was formed when NYSE acquired the American Stock Exchange (Amex) in January 2008 to expand its U.S. options business. The merger agreement was approved by The Amex Membership corporation on June 17, 2008.
On March 2 of 2009, NYSE Euronext announced that NYSE Amex options, one of the company’s two U.S. options exchanges, had completed its transition to the new trading floor located at 11 Wall St., New York. The new facility was adjacent to the New York Stock Exchange equities trading floor and was comprised of two adjoining rooms with new trading pits. As part of the transition, NYSE finished moving about 300 traders and floor officials from the Amex building to the New York Stock Exchange.
