How much will I have to pay?

Margins

CFD trading is a form of leveraged trading, meaning you can win, or lose, a significant amount more than you deposit initially. Though not actually a cost to you, the margin you pay makes a big difference to the affordability of your trade.

Spreads

Your key payment for trading cryptocurrencies is the spread – the difference between the buy and the sell price – essentially our commission for executing your trade. We work to keep our spreads among the lowest in the business.
