Unlike other asset classes (FX, Equities, Commodities, etc.), the Cryptocurrency market is dominated by retail speculators. With IC Markets Cryptocurrency CFDs, you’ll trade in a market where there is no central bank intervention, interbank dealers controlling order flow or giant pension funds moving prices.

Price movements on Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum are driven primarily by news and prevailing sentiment, i.e. the fear and greed of retail speculators. These sometimes dramatic shifts can lead to massive intraday price swings, making Cryptocurrency CFDs an exciting product for aggressive and experienced day traders.

The IC Markets Cryptocurrency CFD product allows traders to go long or short without actually holding the Cryptocurrency. This means traders can get exposure to the price of the Cryptocurrency without worrying about the security risks associated with storing it and the counterparty risk from the exchange. This is similar to trading Energy Futures such as oil rather than owning physical oil to speculate on its price.

Bitcoin CFD

The first and largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin paved the ways for hundreds of similar currencies and boasts a market cap of over $100 billion.

Ethereum CFD

The world's second-largest cryptocurrency, it is labelled by many as 'the next Bitcoin'. Ethereum has received international recognition and support from giant organisations such as Microsoft, JP Morgan, and Intel.

Chainlink CFD

Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network and cryptocurrency that provides data to blockchains. It is one of the main sources of data used to feed information to applications in decentralized finance.

How does Crypto CFD
trading work?

Bitcoin is a digital cryptocurrency that derives its value from supply and demand factors unique to this asset class.

Bitcoin is available in a finite supply and therefore increases in price as demand increases.

Demand stems from speculative sources and more practical sources, for example, Internet purchases paid for in Bitcoin.

Bitcoin also has a tendency to react to market sentiment in more traditional markets such as equities and foreign exchange, increasing during periods of negative sentiment.

 

Virtual currency CFD’s are complex, extremely risky and usually highly speculative instruments. When trading such products there is a high risk of losing all your initial capital. You should consider whether you understand how virtual currency CFD’s work and whether you can bear the loss of the entire invested amount. The values of virtual currencies are subject to extreme price volatility and may result in significant loss over a short period of time. Prior to trading these instruments you should fully understand the true extent of the exposure to the risk of loss and take into consideration your level of experience.

Gross Profit on Trade
