Abu Dhabi based international financial services firm ADS Securities has announced that traders using its proprietary OREX platform are now able to trade five cryptocurrencies, adding to Bitcoin and Ethereum which have been available since last year.
ADS Securities soft launched the new products to existing customers in mid-March with a good response, and given that the broader interest in cryptocurrency trading remains will now be marketing these more widely.
The crypto-coins available are:
- Bitcoin Cash
To coincide with the broader launch of this enhanced cryptocurrency offering, ADS Securities said it has reduced the spreads on Ethereum and Bitcoin, to reduce the cost of trading for its clients.
ADS Securities provides extensive education and training for investors and sees the trading of cryptocurrencies through CFDs as the best way to access these assets at a time of high market volatility. Using CFDs also means that clients do not need to set-up crypto wallets with the associated risks.
Jason Hughes, Head of Retail Sales at ADS Securities, explained:
We are delighted to be expanding the offering on our OREX platform to include these key cryptocurrencies. OREX enables users to access the crypto markets with ease, and the flexibility of CFDs allow our clients to take long or short positions, helping their management of exposures and positioning during the current volatility in these markets.
Cryptocurrencies have been making waves for some time, however now that understanding of the market is growing, we believe it is the right time to introduce more coins on to our OREX Platform.
