Bitcoin updates:

The CBOE 1 bitcoin contract launched last night in what I consider a relatively successful first day. The CBOE contract controls one bitcoin while the CME contract set to launch this coming Sunday evening controls 5 bitcoins.

We saw approx. 4000 contracts traded on the January contract of the CBOE with a high of 18850 and a low of 15,000 ( where the market opened…) The contract is very volatile and the bid-ask spread is still wide.

Dear Traders,

Bitcoin: Will Stunning Rally Sustain or Sour in 2018?

  • 4 Dec 2017
  • By Erik Norland
  • Topics: FX, Equity Index, Metals

Our previous article on bitcoin focused on the crypto asset as a currency and delved into the inherent tension in its role as a medium of exchange and a store of value. This paper examines why bitcoin is so volatile; its supply and demand drivers, and how the cryptocurrency compares to commodities.

What is most striking about the economics of bitcoin is the certainty of its supply and the vagaries of demand. The rate at which bitcoin is mined has been highly predictable and unlike almost any other asset – currencies or commodities – its ultimate supply is a known quantity, fixed well in advance. There will never be more than 21 million bitcoins. This feature makes supply almost perfectly inelastic. No matter how high prices go, miners will not produce more than 21 million coins. Moreover, price increases won’t necessarily incentivize a more rapid mining of bitcoin. Even if they did, it would only influence miners to create more bitcoin today at the expense of creating less in the future since the total supply will reach a hard, asymptotic limit of 21 million coins…..Read the Rest

Dear Traders,

TRADE SMART / BASE TRADING ON ACTUALS ONLY — for the  current rankings  as well as actual performance of trading systems traded at Cannon click here .

Cannon Trading Co, Inc. is registered with the CFTC and a member of the NFA. 

Last but not least…Bitcoin futures updates

CBOE to launch bitcoin futures on Dec. 10th. This will be the “mini” contract, controlling one bitcoin. We will offer access via most platforms hopefully as early as Monday Dec. 11th pending successful testing.

CME will launch its bitcoin contract on Dec. 17th ( Sunday night). This contract will control 5 bitcoins. Currently margin for large contract set approx. at $20k and for the mini at $5k.

I would highly recommend to use patience and observe trading, liquidity, bid-ask spread and more for a few days before jumping in, especially if you are on the “greener side of futures” or not well capitalized. We are here to share feedback, talk and try to help in any way we can.

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.

Here is more specifically regarding the CBOE bitcoin contract. This applies for users of our E-Futures Int’l platform. Users of other platforms, please consult with your broker.

The CBOE will launch the Bitcoin Futures contract December 10, 2017.   The following link is to the CBOE Bitcoin information page http://cfe.cboe.com/cfe-products/xbt-cboe-bitcoin-futures?utm_campaign=bitcoin-futures&utm_medium=vanity-url&utm_source=na    We will be offering the CBOE Bitcoin via our platform, however, until live data is provided, the contract cannot be fully tested and proper due diligence performed, therefore, there will be a slightly delay in offering.  We do expect the contract to be tested and available within the first few days of trading.  We will keep you updated on the availability.

The CBOE has set initial margin at 44% of the current daily settlement price:

Yesterday’s bitcoin Settlement Price = $11,595.00

Price Fluctuation = $1.00 per Bitcoin

Contract Value = $11,595.00

Initial Margin = $5,101.80

As this is a new contract, with a highly volatile underlying contract, We will initially be setting the following Margin  Requirements:

Day Trade Margins 7:00am CT – 4:00pm CT – 100% of Exchange Initial Margin

Overnight Margins 5:00pm CT – 7:00am CT – 125% of Exchange Initial Margin

We will keep you updated on any changes or developments.

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!
