Trade Bitcoin with FXCM

We have launched our first Cryptocurrency CFD, Bitcoin (BTC/USD).

Whether the price of Bitcoin goes up or down, you can take part of the action by trading at FXCM.

You can enable the instrument on your account today by typing 'BTC/USD' into the search box on the Trading Station Symbols list window.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a global form of digital currency. Unlike traditional currencies, which were frequently backed by gold and silver, bitcoin is based on distributed computing. While traditional currencies are printed by central banks, bitcoins are created or "mined" by distributed computer networks.

Bitcoin differs from traditional currencies is that it is decentralized, meaning that it is not controlled by any single institution. As a result, miners around the world create new units of the currency and confirm its transactions.

Why Trade BTC/USD with FXCM?


With FXCM you can open long and short BTC/USD positions and trade potential market moves in either direction.


Trading FXCM’s BTC/USD CFD means that no physical delivery of Bitcoin is required and profits and losses are credited or debited to your account instantly.


Micronized contracts allow you to place trades as small as the equivalent of 1/100th of a Bitcoin, which also lowers the margin requirements to hold a position open.


2:1 Leverage Available. Control the position size of your choosing requiring only half the necessary funds.

Demo Account: Although demo accounts attempt to replicate real markets, they operate in a simulated market environment. As such, there are key differences that distinguish them from real accounts; including but not limited to, the lack of dependence on real-time market liquidity and the availability of some products which may not be tradable on live accounts. The operational capabilities when executing orders in a demo environment may result in atypically, expedited transactions; lack of rejected orders; and/or the absence of slippage. There may be instances where margin requirements differ from those of live accounts as updates to demo accounts may not always coincide with those of real accounts.
