Interested in litecoin trading with IG?
You’ll need a leveraged trading account to start speculating on litecoin CFDs.
Opening an IG trading account takes a few minutes, and you can chat to one of our dedicated experts 24 hours a day (Monday to Friday) if you have any problems. Once your account is open, there’s no obligation to fund or trade.
Keep in mind that, unlike if you were to buy and sell litecoin, you won’t need an account with an exchange. This is because you trade on the prices offered, which we derive from multiple exchanges on your behalf.
A comprehensive trading plan is a great way of taking the emotion out of your decisions, setting out the trades you should make as well as when to take profit or cut losses. Here are five steps that you can follow to create a trading plan:
