Yesterday, December 12th, 2017, the January contract of Bitcoin futures retreated by closing at 18020 which is slightly below the settlement price of the previous day. What was disappointing was the volume that dropped drastically if compared to its debut on the futures market last Sunday as well as its first full day of trading last Monday.

The CEO and Chairman of CBOE, Ed Tilly, expect a slow increase in volume over time. I believe that the introduction of Bitcoin Futures by the larger CME should be able to help in building up that expected volume. We are just waiting to see what happens next.
