Please note that in times of high volatility, our minimum spreads can increase significantly.
Given the high demand and price increases, we may restrict any new orders to buy or sell cryptocurrency, both online and over the telephone.
As we hedge client exposure in the underlying market, our interests are aligned with yours. However, due to the various risks and complexity involved in trading underlying cryptocurrencies, there's a limit to the total amount of physical cryptocurrency we can hold as a business. We therefore need to reflect this by limiting the exposure that each client is allowed to maintain through CFDs and spread bets. This limit is currently £250,000 notional or equivalent per client across all cryptocurrency holdings. Any client with a notional size above this limit is at risk of having their cryptocurrency positions reduced.

Please note that for any position opened before 10pm (London time) Wednesday that is still open after 10pm (London time) Wednesday, the daily interest credit or debit will be made for three days as opposed to one. This three-day adjustment covers settlement of trades over the weekend period. Adjustments will also be made in advance of Christmas and New Year holidays.
