Should You Trade Bitcoin Futures?

Posted by David Bean on

I say not yet! It's exciting to see Bitcoin futures being traded tonight on the CME Group for the first time but the spreads are sometimes $1000 per contract. Watch the order book for liquidity before you start trading this market.

For now, stay with the cash. We like to use Coinigy.com for charting and trade execution on Poloniex.com.

The Bitcoin futures specs are $50 per tick since the minimum tick size is $10 and the contract size is 5 Bitcoin. The margin is $10,541. The symbol is XBTF18. We will continue watching this new market and let you know when we see a trading opportunity.
