CryptoWatch: Bitcoin futures volatility sets record low

Bitcoin was trading marginally lower Monday, but remains in its recent narrow trading range.

In Monday trading, a single bitcoin BTCUSD, -0.19% was fetching $6,393.63, down 0.6% since 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday on the Kraken crypto exchange. The No. 1 digital currency has spent the last five trading sessions inside the $6,300 to $6,400 range.

As bitcoin trading ranges narrow, records continue to tumble. “As it turns out, [bitcoin] XBT futures and cryptos in general are moving with very little speed. The week ending Oct. 26th was the least volatile since futures were introduced nearly a year ago,” wrote Kevin Davitt, senior instructor for The Options Institute at Cboe Global Markets.
