Why trade a cryptocurrency CFD over going to the exchanges?

Trading a cryptocurrency CFD allows you to maximize the amount of money you want to ‘invest’ in the crypto market.  CFD’s base their price on the underlying asset and allow you to participate in the price movements of that instrument.

There are 6 main advantages of trading a CFD over going direct to an exchange:

Leverage

Put up a small amount of money to control large cryptocurrency positions.

Customer service

Enjoy experienced and knowledgeable live customer support staff available 24 hours a day 5 days a week.

Safety of funds

Deposit funds with an ASIC or FCA registered broker where top-tiered banks are holding your money.

Funding in fiat currencies

Simply fund your account in dollars with a reputable broker.

Ability to go short

Short sell all cryptocurrencies and allow yourself a hedging opportunity.

Trade FX & Cryptos on the same platform

Flexibility to trade multiple asset classes in the same account.
