Micro Bitcoin Futures

Cryptocurrency has taken off as an encrypted alternative to real spending money, giving people more options for doing business. Bitcoin is one of the leading cryptocurrencies on the market, especially after it boomed in 2017. Nowadays, many websites accept Bitcoin payments, which has helped the cryptocurrency market grow significantly. Micro Bitcoin futures have also made a significant impact on the futures trading industry. 

Now, many brokers offer futures for Bitcoin and other types of cryptocurrency. It is easier than ever to trade shares of these types of currency, and traders of all experience levels can trade practically anytime and anywhere. 

  • Keep in mind that before you start trading Bitcoin/ Micro Bitcoin and other crypto futures you will need to acknowledge additional risk disclosures on top of the standard futures disclosures.

One of the most convenient ways for traders to get the results from cryptocurrency is by trading micro futures. Recently, the CME Group announced new Micro Bitcoin futures, which have revolutionized futures trading. Now, for 1/10 the cost of the average Bitcoin share, a trader can purchase shares of this new type of future.

About Micro Bitcoin Futures

Micro Bitcoin Futures and Bitcoin Futures are both offered by CME to traders around the world. These contracts vary in size, depending on whether a client pursues a regular Bitcoin future or a Micro Bitcoin future. 

Micro Bitcoin Futures allow traders to access Bitcoin Futures for a tenth of the cost of a regular Bitcoin future. Both types of contracts make it easy to get into the Bitcoin market, allowing clients to get the most out of their trading process. 

Trading Micro Bitcoin Futures

The CME Group launched Micro Bitcoin Futures in May of 2021 and it has been a successful  contract from the start. With Bitcoin rising in prominence worldwide, it is easy to see why this type of futures contract appears to be here to stay. 

Bitcoin futures trading has been prominent since 2017 when the CME Group introduced it. Micro futures allow traders to speculate and hedge using 1/10th the size of a single coin of this iconic cryptocurrency. With Bitcoin still dominating the cryptocurrency industry, it is easy to see why many traders prefer the Micro futures over the traditional larger Bitcoin futures as the good faith deposit required is 1/10th of that of the standard Bitcoin contract.

While the new Micro Bitcoin Futures provide a value of 1/10 of a Bitcoin, these contracts are 1/50th the good faith deposit required of a traditional Bitcoin contract. This lower margin requirement allows traders to access more futures, giving them greater control of how much they can invest. 

The versatility of the market, along with the lower capital involved, helps more traders access this type of future. It is for this reason that Micro Bitcoin Futures are popular with both active traders and cryptocurrency users. 

Benefits of Micro Bitcoin Futures

There are many benefits involved in trading Micro Bitcoin Futures, which can help traders who have just started participating in the market. 

Micro Bitcoin futures allow traders to take advantage of the many benefits of Bitcoin futures without investing as much. The CME Group saw the need for a minor Bitcoin futures contract, especially since the traditional contract was worth 5 Bitcoin. 

More people could participate in cryptocurrency futures trading by creating this new, minor contract, which helped liquidity.

The institutional volume for Micro Bitcoin Futures has allowed the market to reach over a million contracts in just a short period. While this type of trading launched in the summer of 2021, it has become a popular choice, even seeming to outpace the traditional Bitcoin futures market. 

Here are just a few of the benefits traders can expect when utilizing Micro Bitcoin Futures:
  • Smaller capital investment
  • Reasonable bid offer spreads
  • Lower entry price
  • Regulated financial products
  • More accessible to more traders
  • And more

Gold Daily Chart below. Sympathy rally with Bitcoin?
End of the year rally?
Need to see a close above 1900 to get a bit more excited about this one.
Time will tell.
Quick educational tips:
1. Look for high volume markets with a thin spread, so orders are filled quickly and it has high volatility, so there are opportunities for 2 to 4 good trades during the day. The Emini S&P500 Index Future is a good example of this type of market (Each point is worth $50, split into 4 ticks of $12.50 and there are 4 contracts a year, traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange).
2. Try to minimize risk to 1% of your capital per trade, then your capital can absorb 100 consecutive bad trades. Even the best systems can expect 20% -40% loosing trades, so the 1% rule gives you room to maneuver.
3. $10-$15k is the minimum recommended risk capital you should have per Emini S&P500 contract traded – then if you lose $1000-$1500 it only represents 10% of you capital, which is recoverable compared to a $3k account where the same loss equals 50% of your account, consequently you are more likely to lose the remainder of your capital rather than recover the loss. If you don’t have the higher risk capital, limit yourself to the MICROS – 1/10th the size.
4. Limit the hours you trade – the more you trade, the more exposed you are to human weaknesses, frustration and more. Just like an athlete you need to preserve your trading (playing) time….
