Front month for Silver and most grains is now March.
Front month for gold is now February.
Front month for bonds and other interest futures is now March 2018.
Today was the last trading day of the month and we witnessed some high volatility in crude, gold, coffee to name a few. Take notes in your journal and keep in mind that the first trading day of the month can also be volatile….
Last but not least…How to open a Bitcoin futures trading account:
We got calls and inquiries about trading Bitcoin futures.
If you already have an account with us, you simply need to make sure it is active and funded and as soon as the CFTC approves the new product and CME launches trading, we will update the trading platforms and you will be able to trade Bitcoin futures.
Keep in mind that we are still waiting for information regarding margins/day trading margins etc.
You should be able to trade, day trade and trade options on bitcoin futures as long as you have the proper margin in the account.
We are “guestemating ” that overnight margins will be around $20,000 and that daytrading margins will be somewhere between $2500 to $10,000. This is a rough estimate and we will know more once CFTC approval goes through.
If you don’t have an account set up with us, all you need to do is fill out the online application get the account approved, fund the account, practice in demo mode to get familiar with the platform and everything I wrote above will apply to you….
If you have ANY questions, feel free to call, chat or contact us!
