Forex pair example

You're interested in trading a spot FX XBT/USD CFD. Our price is currently 35000 / 35400.

You believe the bitcoin price will fall against the dollar, so you sell 1 contract at 35000 (equivalent to selling 100 bitcoins at $350).

The bitcoin price falls and our new price is 33600 / 34000. You decide to take your profit by buying at 34000.

35000 - 34000 = 1000 pips

Your gross profit is 1000 x $1 = $1000.

If the market had rallied 500 points instead, your gross loss would be $500.

Do I need a bitcoin wallet to trade bitcoin markets with IG?

No. With IG you are simply speculating on the price movement of bitcoin ($). You never need to actually own any.

Can I take a short view to open on the price of bitcoins ($) with the markets that IG offers?

Yes. With our FX pairs you never hold bitcoins in the real sense, so you can take a short view to open on bitcoins.

IG’s bitcoin settlement is based on a combination of real time prices provided directly by some of the world’s most liquid bitcoin exchanges.

When are your bitcoin markets available?

Bitcoin markets are available from 21:00 (London time) on Sunday until 22:00 (London time) on Friday.

Where are the bitcoin markets on the trading platform?

The bitcoin FX pairs are under "Forex" > "Virtual FX". The bitcoin ($) markets are under "Bitcoin" in the main finder navigation.
