shout out to Roma. Thanks for the points. For some reason my Pm function is disabled?

CME futures begin trading this monday. Should be interesting.

The largest U.S. electronic brokerage firm now allows clients to short bitcoin futures through the nascent bitcoin futures market on regulated exchange CBOE, but the margin requirements may price small-scale traders out of the market.

Interactive Brokers, which processes more daily average revenue trades than any other electronic brokerage firm in the U.S., made the announcement this week, several days after the first bitcoin futures launched on CBOE.

Like many brokerage firms, Interactive Brokers did not initially allow clients to take up short positions in CBOE’s bitcoin futures market. However, the firm changed its mind after observing the large premium that the January contracts were trading at over the spot price of bitcoin.

“The introduction of short sales was necessitated by the large premium of the January futures contract over the price at which Bitcoin trades on the physical venues,” said Thomas Peterffy, founder and chairman of Interactive Brokers.

At the time of writing, January futures were trading at $18,100, while the spot price of bitcoin was $17,631, according to CBOE’s index price.

“That says to me that there aren’t enough brokers allowing shorting,” Peterffy explained in an interview with BuzzFeed News, “because if there were, there would be people that buy the cash and sell the futures.”

Peterffy, many will remember, has been one of the most vocal critics of bitcoin futures and the exchanges that decided to list them. Last month, he took out a full-page ad (PDF) in The Wall Street Journal to warn about the risks that bitcoin futures could have on the wider financial markets.

Nevertheless, Interactive Brokers ultimately determined that since the futures products were going to be listed anyway, they would not prevent clients from trading them.

The firm said that it processed approximately 50 percent of all trading volume during the first few days that bitcoin futures were listed on CBOE, so its decision to allow clients to short bitcoin could have significant ramifications on the market.

However, the firm’s strict requirements will likely price many retail investors out of the market. All clients taking short positions will be required to maintain a margin of $40,000 per contract in their trading accounts for each short sale. Since each CBOE contract is equivalent to 1 BTC, that margin requirement works out to more than 200 percent of the contract value. Clients taking long positions, for reference, must maintain a margin of $9,000 per contract, a rate of approximately 50 percent.

in a nutshell if you short you will get rekt
good luck all

The main problem with Ponzi schemes is that they implode due to market saturation...... See you at $20k.
There is a 1 credit course of knowledge here. I am going to reread it bottom to top again.

An excellent example of a Ponzi scheme is/was the GM pension fund. As long as GM grew, new employees paid into the fund, paying the retirees. Of course, that assumes the money is invested in stocks and bonds like the S&P 500 and not Local #2087s Pres. new swimming pool loan.

Our Social Security system is a close second.

My contract is open ended. As long as the mining difficulty and cost (energy and expenses) does not exceed my return I will continue to be paid. At one point I had 50 TH's of hash power for a very short time. I sold 15 to my brother and I now have 35 TH's. It took about 38 days to get back my $4450 investment back. I have now made $13,706 since mid August. Unfortunately Genesis is no longer selling any Bitcoin mining to my knowledge.

I dont have strong opinions on any alt coins, they go as btc goes

even eth and ltc

if you can find a favorable deal, monero, nec and ripple might be good for a small initial investment

everything depends on your tolerance of risk

Kraken waiting on verification and always get server errors.

Bitstamp waiting on verification

Bittrex not accepting new customers

I should have got another out other than coin base months ago but life happens and put ripple on back burner. Rumor is it is next to go on coinbase and they have a shot at amazon and Uber plus a real management team. I look for price to explode in next couweekend le years

A friend of mine from work who's been buying with me told me about a financial buddy of his who has been buying ripple on Korean exchange. Said the same thing. Let's hope it doesn't beat us to it.

Gatehub wallet for ripple. I'm just getting started with it so not much to report yet. It is the wallet mentioned on the ripple website though.

Use Binance Natty, those ones you listed earlier are having lots of problems and frankly I wouldn't want any of your money being compromised. One note on Binance is you'd need to send a form of Crypto Currency in order to buy XRP. For example send BTC and buy the BTC/XRP pairing.

is there a way to tell how your coins have performed since you bought them?
All I see are generalized past 24 hrs etc. Seems like such a basic thing hard to imagine they wouldn't have that option. Thanks

Bitcoin debuted on this day in 2009.

A year and a half later, a man named Laszlo Hanyecz is 1st to spend bitcoins in a financial transaction. He gave someone 10,000 bitcoins (then valued at $41 total) for two Papa John's pizzas.

Those bitcoins today are worth $150 million.
