Due to its volatility, bitcoin futures will be subject to higher margin levels and intraday price limits, the CME said.
In an unexpected development, the Chicago-based Cboe Futures Exchange (CFE) has announced it will list bitcoin futures contracts for trading on December 10. One bitcoin was worth just a fraction of a penny when it started trading in 2010, and by the start of this year was worth $1,000.
The fact that this price was achieved much before the end of the year and that the prices overshot this region to move beyond the $11,000 region during the month was a sample of how strong this bull run has been during the month of November. Monday, December 11, will be the first full day of trading, and trading will be free through December.
This also led to the migration of a few miners and investors to other markets like bitcoin cash and ethereum and once again, it looked as though the bitcoin prices would crash a lot more.
"We are pleased to bring Bitcoin futures to market after working closely with the CFTC and market participants to design a regulated offering that will provide investors with transparency, price discovery, and risk transfer capabilities", said Terry Duffy, CME Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The first bitcoin futures contracts on a regulated US exchange are set to launch on Sunday. Bitstamp, GDAX, itBit and Kraken are the constituent exchanges that now contribute the pricing data for calculating the BRR.
Bitcoin hit a record above US$11,400 last Wednesday, but then lost 20% of its value in the following 24 hours.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission said it had discussions with the exchanges to protect consumers from extreme price swings.
