NYSE Amex and NYSE Arca commenced trading on mini options on March 18, 2013.  mini options are a new contract size that carry a deliverable of 10 shares of an underlying security, unlike standard contracts of 100 shares. The 10 share underlying means that the contract will require delivery or receipt of 10 shares per contract when either exercised or assigned. This also means that the premium multiplier is 10 instead of 100 for the standard contract. Additionally, the 10 multiplier means that a mini contract purchased will cost 1/10 of the value of a standard contract enabling  investors to execute certain option strategies with less capital commitment than with a standard contract.
