    In a commodity market, supply comes out of storage when price rises or more is produced. In Bitcoin supply is limited.

    Except you are buying into a cash settled index, you are not actually buying any bitcoins.

    since IB doesn't allow shorting of bitcoin futures, we need to come up with solution.
    we cannot continue to buy first then sell later.
    at times, we want to sell first then buy later.

    How about other brokerage?

    Check with your FCM. I believe the "cannot short" rule is specific to the FCM. I'm not aware of any exchange rule that states traders may not short BTC futures.

    well. hope CME, CBOE, Nasdaq offer bitcoin options on futures by early next year.
    hope the options is ready soon because we want to profit from bitcoin bubble burst.


    The demand for bitcoin options will surely be very strong.
    Who knows, it might be even stronger than kopsi option.

    This way, we can profit when bitcoin is going up, going down, or sideway.
