CHICAGO - US stock-options trading had another record day on Monday, preliminary figures from clearinghouse OCC showed, as growing fears of a recession drove US stocks sharply lower.

The nine US options markets had together handled more than 41 million contracts, according to an OCC spokesman said. The total could change when the final data is tallied.

The unofficial reading tops the 39.5 million-contract record set on Friday. Going into Monday, average daily trading so far this year had been 18.1 million contracts.
