  • JPMorgan Could Launch CME Bitcoin Options Soon

JP Morgan Chase bank, the largest bank in the United States with total assets of US$2.765 trillion, has stated that it anticipates good response to CME Group's Bitcoin (BTC) options trading when it is launched for clients on January 13.

Intercontinental exchange's Bakkt has already launched options last month but the volumes and open interest on them have been "rather small", wrote JPMorgan's strategists led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou in a note on January 10. Given the dominance of CME in trading Bitcoin futures on regulated exchanges, this new offering may change things, they said.

Panigirtzoglou said there "has been a step increase in the activity of the underlying CME futures contract", in the days leading up to the launch of options trading, culminating in a 69 percent increase from the end of 2019.

As reported, CME Group is adding bitcoin options based on its existing bitcoin futures contracts. When ICE debuted its physically settled futures contracts, Bakkt in September the prices fell that time too.

Data from CME's official website confirmed the successful rollout on January 13, which began as scheduled and ultimately saw 55 contracts change hands.
