The rate of increase in the net short positions in bitcoin of the big players is slowing down

Over the week ending January 9, the number of open contracts for bitcoin futures on the CBOE rose from 4,065 to 4,624, according to the report of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

A total of 42 traders took part in the trading process, some of them being brokers representing their clients.

The rate of increase in the net short positions of the bigger players, including brokers, funds with external financing, and others who are obliged to submit regular reports to the commission, is slowing down. In a week, it increased from 1,688 to 1,907 contracts (the volume of the long positions increased from 1,356 to 1,764 contracts, while the short positions are up from 3,044 to 3,671 contracts).

The net long position of the smaller players increased from 1,688 to 1,907 contracts (the long positions are up from 2,338 to 2,551 contracts, the short positions are up from 650 to 644 contracts).

The CME Group, which trades bitcoin futures since December 18, is still not reflected in the weekly CFTC report.

The trading volume of one contract is one bitcoin on CBOE and 5 bitcoins on CME.
