Bitcoin futures begin trading on CME
The CME's futures will track an index of bitcoin prices pulled from several private exchanges. The CME Group, which owns the exchange, opened up bitcoin futures for trading at 6 p. The Securities and Exchange Commission put out a statement last week warning investors to be careful with any investment in bitcoin or other digital currencies. Further, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission has proposed regulating bitcoin like a commodity, not unlike gold, silver, platinum or oil.
