Mark your calendar, Micro Bitcoin Futures from CME Group launch on May 3, 2021.

Micro Bitcoin Futures (MBT) are 1/10th the size of one Bitcoin providing access to capitalize on the Bitcoin marketplace at a fraction of the cost and with a reduced financial commitment.

The Bitcoin marketplace remains volatile and the introduction of a micro contract will allow futures traders to target opportunities in this active virtual currency marketplace at a fraction of the cost.

Bitcoin Daily Chart

The recent massive liquidation in BTC/USD kept BTC futures down throughout last week, but there are signs BTC could start the week strong. A $7K value gain in the past 24 hours suggests a correction could be underway, with the price heading back toward the 21-day simple moving average, and April’s Volume Profile Point of Control. The MACD is still indicating a downtrend, but could turn to the upside in the coming days if BTC continues to correct.
