CME Group self-certifies listing of bitcoin futures contract

Cboe announces bitcoin futures to start trading Sunday

Cboe's bitcoin futures will trade on CFE under the ticker symbol 'XBT.' XBTSM futures are cash-settled contracts based on Gemini's auction price for bitcoin, denominated in US dollars.

Since November 2016, CME Group and Crypto Facilities Ltd. have calculated and published the BRR, which aggregates the trade flow of major bitcoin spot exchanges during a calculation window into the U.S. Dollar price of one bitcoin as of 4:00 p.m. London time.

It operates through three divisions: Commercial Solutions, Research & Development Solutions, and Integrated Engagement Services. State of Alaska Department of Revenue lifted its position in Twenty-First Century Fox by 4.8% during the 2nd quarter.

Looking ahead to the month of December, though the rest of the market is likely to be affected by the drying up of liquidity towards the close of the year and this is likely to bring down volatility in those instruments, this lack of liquidity could divert the investors and funds towards the bitcoin market which could add to the bullish scenario and also lead to a lot of volatility in the bitcoin prices over the next month. Consequently, Cboe will become the first US exchange to support trading for a cryptocurrency-derived futures product.

Cboe and CME got approval from the US derivatives regulator to list bitcoin futures on Friday, after the rival bourses were able to show that their proposed contracts and trading arrangements met the necessary regulatory requirements.

Former Fugees star Jean said the boy band were "so incredible I had to jump on a plane to come represent for them, baby". The Watford quartet now release their winner's single Dimelo , which is available to download and stream now.

At CBOE, the contract limit is 5,000. XBTSM futures are cash-settled contracts based on Gemini's auction price for bitcoin. CBOE will derive its bitcoin contract price from the Gemini bitcoin exchange, which is owned by the Winklevoss twins, Cameron and Tyler. Bitstamp, GDAX, itBit and Kraken are the constituent exchanges that now contribute the pricing data for calculating the BRR. To ensure minimal impact on markets due to bitcoin's price swings, traders will have to pay 33 percent of their trade's price upfront as compared to the 35 percent for CME bitcoin futures trades.

"If the Commission determines that the margin the DCOs hold against bitcoin futures positions is inadequate, it can take measures to require that the margin levels be increased", CFTC Commissioner Brian Quintez said in a speech last week.

US pulls out of UN's migration pact
He added that the United States "has the experience and expertise to help ensure that this process leads to a successful outcome". Ambassador Nikki Haley said the US will continue in its "generosity" by supporting migrants and refugees around the world.

Last week, a JPMorgan global markets strategist forecast that the introduction of bitcoin futures would legitimize cryptocurrency in the eyes of both institutional and retail investors, transforming the cryptocurrencies into "an emerging asset class".
