CME® Group Announces Launch of Bitcoin Futures
Effective in the fourth quarter of 2017, CME® will launch a cash-settled Bitcoin futures contract. The contract will be based on the CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR), and will be the futures industry's first entry in the cryptocurrency market, which has grown to a capitalization of $172 billion, of which Bitcoin comprises about $94 billion (54%). Each contract will contain 5 Bitcoin and have a minimum fluctuation of $5.00/Bitcoin ($25/contract), and trading will be through Globex® and ClearPort 17:00—16:00 CT Sunday—Friday.
NFA Recommends Increase in Assessed Fees
NFA's Executive Committee recommended to its Board of Directors that all futures and options contracts, which currently have an assessment fee of 1¢ per side, be assessed 2¢ per side beginning January 1, 2018. The increase will fund the NFA's operations, including its regulatory programs, and make the U.S. futures and options markets less competitive internationally. Presumably, the Board of Directors and CFTC will approve this assessment increase.
