Why Trade Crypto at FXCM?

Competitive Bitcoin Spreads

FXCM's Bitcoin Spreads are among the tightest in the industry.

Leverage Available*

Up to 2:1 effective leverage[1] available. Control the position size of your choosing requiring only half of the necessary funds. Use effective leverage to trade 1:1 as well. The choice is yours.

Trade Your Way

Go long or short – no restrictions on market direction. Looking to automate your trading on cryptocurrencies? Our cryptocurrencies can handle your automated strategies.

CFDs or Physical Cryptos?

Let us settle the debate for you. CFDs offer advantages to the speculator that are not provided by underlying "physical" crypto market. They are:

No Fussing with Crypto Wallets or Hardware Wallets

If you buy and sell physical cryptocurrencies you need to make a decision on whether or not you leave your physical cryptocurrencies with your provider. If you do, you risk they may be hacked. If you do not, you have to learn how to use hardware wallets where one wrong keystroke could mean all funds are lost.

Crytpocurrencies are not widely accepted as payment for goods and services. No need to hold them physically.

Regulation That Protects

CFDs are regulated financial products. Physical crypto is not. To the trader that means the firm they deal with is subject to oversight by both regulators, auditors, and best execution committees. With a CFD, you can be sure you are receiving the best price available as it's a regulatory requirement. You are not guaranteed that with physical crypto.

Better Platforms

Our platforms are battle-tested and have been in development throughout FXCM's 20 year history. They are more feature-rich than the newly-established trading platforms of physical crypto companies. You may trade any crypto product you like without regard for what you currently hold in your account. For example, an FXCM account in GBP can go long BTC/USD without need to first own USD. That is not the case with major crypto "exchanges".
