How to trade bitcoin with us

When you trade bitcoin with us, you’ll be speculating on its price with CFD.

This product makes it possible to take a position on bitcoin’s price without owning any physical coins – which means you can go short or long, depending on the market trend.

To go short on bitcoin, you’d select ‘sell’ and expect the price to fall. To go long, you’d select ‘buy’ and expect the price to rise.

As well as bitcoin, we offer other cryptocurrencies including bitcoin cash, ripple and ether – all of which you can trade with CFD.

Bitcoin CFD example

You're interested in trading bitcoin (USD) via a CFD. Our price is currently 10,400 to sell bitcoin, or 10,438 to buy it.

You believe that bitcoin’s price will fall against the dollar, so you sell five contracts at 10,400 (the equivalent to selling five bitcoins at $10,400).

The bitcoin price falls and our new price is 10,312/10,350. You decide to take your profit by buying at 10,350.

$10,400 - $10,350 = $50 move or 50 points

Your gross profit is $50 x 5 = $250

If the market had rallied 50 points instead, your gross loss would be $250.
