It's real - just received an Email from my brokerage. Interactive Brokers starts charging negative interest for CHF, EUR and SEK. Guess who is parking his money in the Bitcoin ETN?

Interactive Brokers will allow Bitcoin Futures - with a twist

After the founder of IB taking out a full page ad to warn everyone about the risks of Bitcoin futures to clearinghouses, it appears that IB does plan to support trading Bitcoin futures, albeit with an interesting twist that will undoubtedly make the bitcoin-to-the-moon camp giggle in delight. From the knowledge base article:
Will there be any restrictions on trading?
Due to the extreme volatility of cryptocurrencies, clients will be unable to assume a short position (including as part of a spread). In addition, market orders will not be accepted.

Things I learned today about trading with Interactive Brokers for Bitcoin futures

I've been trading futures for over a decade, so I'm not new to the game. I have a subscription to CBOE and went to place a trade, but was denied. I learned that I need specific "CryptoCurrency" trading permission! WTF???? So I applied and it will take 24 hours to be granted permission. Then I learned Interactive Brokers is NOT ALLOWING TO SHORT GXBT!!!!! WTF???? That's what's good about futures, the ability to go long or short at any time. Then I learned they're charging $5/contract!!!! Again....WTF???? Normal charges for futures contracts are between 40 & 80 cents/contract. $5????? And each contact only holds one bitcoin - a very low amount for a futures contract (except if you consider e-mini's).
I hope things will change with the CME next week. I know one contact will equal 5 bitcoins. Hoping volume will be higher too. Currently, volume is way too low for the amount of hype that was surrounding this.
And the Interactive Brokers CEO said on CNBC earlier that he thinks Bitcoin will go to $0. But before that happens, it could $100,000!!!
Welcome to pure gambling :-)

CEO of Interactive Brokers Is Interested In Having Bitcoin Trading and Bitcoin Futures Products On The Platform

In an interview on CNBC, Thomas Peterffy says that he is interested in having real bitcoin trades as well as other bitcoin products on Interactive Brokers platform.
He also said that he is wary of CME's attempt to launch bitcoin futures without requiring anyone to actually hold the underlying bitcoin that is being traded (because the contracts will be cash-settled).
It seems to be going more and more mainstream by the day!

Stupid-ish question: how do I buy bitcoin with Interactive Brokers?

I read that it is possible to buy a bitcoin fund called Bitcoin Tracker One through IB, ticker BITCOIN XBT. I type it in and it is found, but the option to buy the "stock" is grayed out. How am I supposed to buy it? Thanks.
