Crypto CFD Trading - FAQs
A Crypto CFD stands for a Cryptocurrency Contract for Difference. When you trade Crypto CFDs, you purchase a contract from a CFD provider that allows you to speculate on the price movement of a certain cryptocurrency. Crypto CFDs are leveraged products, and traders can gain full exposure on cryptocurrency markets with only a small deposit at the outset.
You can participate in Crypto CFD trading online on any of our trading platforms, which include MetaTrader 4, MetaTrader 5, and Alchemy Markets’ FIX API solution. They are equipped with superior technical indicators and PAMM and Copy Trading tools. Crypto CFD traders can also automate their trades with Expert Advisors and enjoy utilising leverage of up to 10:1 and expert customer support. For high-frequency traders, our FIX API offering includes a sliding scale commission¹ based on trading volume so that you can save more in costs.
Trading Crypto CFDs and margin trading cryptocurrencies share similarities but are not the exact same. Margin trading crypto involves borrowing funds from an exchange to open a bigger position in the market and purchase more units of a cryptocurrency. Traders may be charged interest for the loan, and a cryptocurrency broker will typically also be able to hold a portion of the cryptocurrencies as collateral to be liquidated if necessary. In Crypto CFD trading, traders merely speculate on the price movements of an underlying crypto and do not purchase the asset, and they need to provide only a fraction of the full cost of their position when they trade crypto with leverage.
