NEW YORK, January 28, 2014 - International Securities Exchange Holdings, Inc. (ISE Holdings) today announced that the SEC has approved listing options on the Nations VolDex® Index(ticker: VOLI). The Nations VolDex measures implied volatility by focusing on at-the-money options while also offering an alternative gauge of volatility.

The exchanges plan to list options on VolDex later this year.
NationsShares is proud to be working with the International Securities Exchange to bring the Nations VolDex measures of option implied volatility to investors and traders everywhere.
