Crypto Industry News:
The offer of Bitcoin options from the CME exchange will certainly enrich the giant’s product menu. In September 2019, CME filed an application to double the monthly limit on open positions of Bitcoin futures contracts to 10,000 BTC, due to the increasing demand for futures contracts.
The options will enable traders to use alternative trading strategies and to save on margins using margin compensation. The CME options on bitcoin will have a minimum tick size (tick size) set at 5 USD per BTC. In this case, for contracts worth 5 BTC, the value will increase by 25 USD.
It seems that the evolution of Bitcoin towards the traditional investment scene with trading in derivatives has been announced as a sign of maturity. It is a gateway for traditional investors to get acquainted with the often volatile but exciting market. It can also lead to a further increase in the interest and adoption of digital assets.

The best strategy in the current market conditions is to trade with the larger timeframe trend, which is still down. All the shorter timeframe moves are still being treated as a counter-trend correction inside of the uptrend. There is a possibility that the wave 2 corrective cycles are completed, so the market might be ready for another impulsive wave up of a higher degree and uptrend continuation.
