A shift in global supply and demand dynamics has led to a spike in volume for options on Grain futures at CME Group. Of the recent surge in activity, much is coming during non-U.S. trading hours, from participants located in EMEA and Asia. That means more trading opportunities for you, around the clock.
Join Dave Lerman in Trader’s Edge for a brief discussion on the global growth in grain options, where he’ll discuss:
• What’s driving the rise in liquidity in Asian and EMEA time zones
• Which contracts are seeing the biggest uptick in volume in the U.S. overnight
• How RFQs are helping to drive interest and greater participation
• Where book depth is today compared to a year ago
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
