Trading is risky

Trading Crypto

The Crypto market is a fast-paced and volatile space, ripe for traders. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have become a household name, and adoption continues to grow. There's an endless stream of opportunities available to those speculating on price movements.

Contract for Difference (CFD) trading allows you to speculate on the price movements of Crypto without actually owning any actual assets. In a market that moves quickly in either direction, this opens up opportunity to profit when markets rise and fall.

CFD trading offers great opportunity for those looking to participate in the Crypto market. One of the key benefits is leverage, which allows you to control a larger position size with a smaller amount of capital. This magnifies potential profits, but it's important to remember that it can also increase the risk of losses.

CFD trading provides the flexibility to go long (buy) or short (sell) on Crypto, allowing traders to capitalise on both upward and downward price movements. This can be particularly advantageous in the dynamic Crypto market.

Commissions and Fees - Crypto CFDs

If you use a Pro ECN account on the MT4 platform:

Our Pro ECN MT4 and Pro ECN MT5 accounts have a simple commission structure of 0.05% of the notional value for Cryptocurrency CFDs.

For Pro ECN MT4 accounts, we apply double the commission when a position is opened and nothing when the position is closed.

For ECN MT5 accounts, half the commission is applied on opening the order and half on the close.

If you use an ECN account on the MT4 platform:

On the ECN MT4, clients can enjoy zero commission in which case there will be only the spreads and swaps charged with no other fees.

Please refer to our Contract Specifications page for spreads and swaps details of each index and stock.


When you trade Crypto directly, you'll own the coins. Crypto CFDs, on the other hand, allow you to speculate on the price movements of Crypto without ever owning the currency. A key benefit of CFDs is that you're able to enter contracts for prices falling (going short), as well as rising (going long).

All trading comes with risk and CFD trading is no different. We strongly encourage you to take your time, do your research, and practice good risk management. We have excellent analysis tools to help you.

Leverage is similar to a loan of sorts, based on ratios. For example, if leverage is 1:100, for every $1 you put down as capital on your trade, we'll give you $100. This means that you have access to larger trade sizes without the capital outlay. This can boost any potential profits exponentially, but it may also increase losses.

All our account types offer Crypto CFDs, but the contract specifications in terms of spreads, lot sizes, swap values and leverage may differ from account to account. Typically, the higher tiered accounts require larger deposits, but offer more favourable conditions.
