- ETH/BTC breaking up and putting the market on pre-warning.
- BTC/USD falls behind, playing its role in primary bullish moments.
- XRP/USD is willing to put its volatility at the disposition of the pump.
We arrive at the last day of the week, and the headlines of the leading media covering the industry speak of the announcement made by the CBOE that it will stop offering the contract on Bitcoin from the end of this month of March. The reason given by the American operator is that the low average trading volume makes it infeasible to continue trading.
A year ago CBOE and CME launched their futures on Bitcoin amidst many uncertainties about the viability of the initiative. The competition between both platforms has been fierce and today the CME, in its quarterly report announces that the volume of negotiation on its future on Bitcoin is growing 16% in Q1 2019 compared to Q4 2018, negotiating so far in the quarter 4,784 contracts, for a value equivalent to 21,000 Bitcoins.
