CFD on Cryptocurrency

Trading on the price movements of Bitcoin and Etherium

BlueOrange Bank provides leveraged CFD trading on price movements of cryptocurrencies

About Cryptocurrency

Unlike traditional purchase of cryptocurrencies trading cryptocurrency CFDs allow speculative operations without maintaining a digital wallet. There is no need to own cryptocurrency coins eliminating cyber security risks.

Due to the leverage provided on trading accounts the client can hold cryptocurrency CFD positions exceeding amount of your own funds on trading account.

Similar to other CFDs and FX instruments, cryptocurrency CFD can be either short or long, therefore a client can benefit from price movements in both directions, up and down.

Please be aware that opened CFD position does not presume owning an underlying asset and the pricing of cryptocurrency CFD varies significantly across different cryptocurrency exchanges. Although the price of the CFD usually reflects the price of the underlying asset, this is not necessarily the case.

Features of Crypto trading

Trade on both rising and falling markets - same as Forex trading, CFD trading enables you to buy (go long) if you believe market prices will rise, or sell (go short) if you believe market prices will fall.

Efficient use of your capital with leverage – CFDs are traded on leverage, meaning you need only a small deposit to open your position rather than having to invest the full value of an asset.

Hedging possibilities – if you expect your existing cryptocurrency portfolio may lose some of its value in a short term, you can use CFDs to cover this loss by short selling.

Trade safely – you don't need to store cryptocurrency in a digital wallet. From time to time crypto-currency exchanges and digital wallets are subject to attacks and hacking. You will be protected against associated risks. Сlient funds are protected in the amount of EUR 20'000.
