Cryptocurrency CFDs

Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile, unregulated, decentralized, and a currency that is almost exclusively in the hands of retail speculators. Trade the world’s newest and most exciting CFD assets with an FSA-regulated broker.

Unlike other asset classes (forex, stocks, commodities, etc.), the cryptocurrency market is dominated by retail speculators. You will be trading cryptocurrencies in a market where there is no central bank intervention, interbank dealers controlling the flow of orders, or huge pension funds influencing prices.

The price volatility of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether is mainly driven by news and popular sentiment, namely the fear and greed of retail speculators. Sometimes, changes in these factors can lead to large intraday price swings, making cryptocurrencies an ideal product for aggressive and experienced day traders.

How cryptocurrency CFDs are traded Operation?

Bitcoin is a digital cryptocurrency whose value derives from supply and demand factors unique to the asset class.

Bitcoin has a limited supply, so as demand increases, so does the price.

Demand comes from speculative sources and more practical sources, such as internet purchases paid for in Bitcoin.

Bitcoin also tends to react to market sentiment in more traditional markets such as stocks and forex, increasing during periods of negative sentiment.
