Trade CFDs on Bitcoin Price
Trading CFDs on bitcoin allows you to speculate on the rising and falling price of bitcoin. Unlike investing in bitcoin, whereby you will make a financial loss should the bitcoin exchange rate fall, by trading CFDs you can go long or short, capitalizing on the ups and downs of bitcoin value.
The value of bitcoin has increased greatly from its early price of $0.003 in March 2010 to its all-time high of $4,683.87 at the end of August 2017. While that means early investors who held onto the cryptocurrency will have made an incredible profit, the value of a bitcoin has also experienced many dips in between, as the bitcoin chart shows. Along with high levels of volatility, these represent a real risk of loss for bitcoin holders, while CFD traders can capitalise on such downward trends.
Plus, you can trade on leverage with margins starting from 2% and there is flexibility on trade size. The bitcoin price is quoted against USD, though it can be changed to show the price of bitcoin against GBP and EUR as well. Rather than owning bitcoin you instead open a position to speculate on its changing value and with leverage can make higher gains from a lower starting amount.
