Big players increased positions in bitcoin futures on CBOE

Big players increased positions in bitcoin futures on CBOE

Over the week ending May 1, the number of open contracts for bitcoin futures on the CBOE increased to 5,816 from 5,753, according to the report filed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

The net short position held by the bigger players went down from 1,911 to 1,741 contracts over the period, whereas long positions increased from 3,111 to 3,143 contracts while short positions declined from 5,022 to 4,884 contracts. The net long position held by the institutional investors was up from 82 to 144 contracts.

As for the smaller players, their net long position over the week fell from 1,829 to 1,597 contracts. The number of their long positions declined from 2,448 to 2,329 contracts while short positions grew from 619 to 732 contracts.

By the bigger players we here mean the participants obliged to submit regular reports to the commission, including brokers, externally financed investment funds, and others.

The figures above do not take into account the positions that are part of spread trading strategies, where traders open both short and long positions simultaneously.

The CBOE began trading bitcoin futures on December 10, followed by the CME Group on December 18.

When assessing the difference in short and long positions of large and small players, it should be borne in mind that a short position in the bitcoin futures market does not necessarily mean that the trader’s forecast for the price of the underlying asset is negative.

The figures reflected in the text are based on the data from the report filed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) published on May 1, 2018.
