CBOE

Definition:

The Chicago Board of Options Exchange. This is the main exchange where listed options on publicly-traded companies are bought and sold. Note that the options are "plain-vanilla" calls and puts, and all such options are American-style, meaning that they can be exercised at any time up to expiration.
