What is Crypto CFD Trading?

Crypto CFD trading is the buying and selling of derivatives that speculate on the price movements of cryptocurrencies. In Crypto CFD trading, traders make predictions on the direction of a cryptocurrency pair’s price movements with various trading tools and strategies. Cryptocurrency pairs can be made up of two different cryptocurrencies (such as BTC/USDT CFD trading), or one cryptocurrency and one fiat currency (such as BTC/USD CFD trading).

How do CFD Trading Accounts Work

A CFD trading account allows you to trade on the price difference of underlying assets without owning them, with the use of leverage. When you trade CFDs, you will need to provide a deposit margin to finance your trades, and you will need to provide a maintenance margin to cover potential losses if your trades go against you.

At Alchemy Markets, we have an impressive and diverse range of over 60 unique Crypto CFDs, making us one of the leading providers in the industry.

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 CopyTrading 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.

You can participate in crypto leverage trading through trading Crypto CFDs. At Alchemy Markets, we have one of the largest product ranges in the industry, offering over 60 unique Crypto CFDs and counting. You can trade Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more*, with leverage of up to 10:1.
