FCA regulated FX and CFDs broker ActivTrades has announced that it has launched CFDs on cryptocurrencies for its clients, including Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum.
ActivTrades will be offering maximum trading leverage of 5:1 on BTCUSD, ETHUSD, and LTCUSD.
The UK-regulated firm, which has offices in Europe and the Middle East, will now give its clients access to trade CFDs on cryptocurrencies using its proprietary trading platform ActivTrader, MetaTrader 4 and 5 on desktop, tablet and mobile.
There are no commission when trading cryptocurrencies with ActivTrades so traders can get the full cryptocurrency experience with no extra costs. Clients can also enjoy greater exposure in the market with leverage up to five as all cryptocurrencies are traded as a CFD. This also eliminates the risk of cryptocurrencies being stolen.
Alex Pusco, CEO of ActivTrades said:
Now that leading derivatives marketplaces such as the CME and CBOE have started offering Future contracts on Bitcoin there is more liquidity in the cryptocurrencies market and we can offer a higher quality product for our traders.
We will also launch webinars about these products to further support our client’s knowledge of the market. There is a high level of interest on cryptocurrencies right now, but as a highly speculative product it is very important to learn how to trade them wisely.
Education has always played a key role in ActivTrades services, just as its ongoing commitment to protect its global customer base. ActivTrades doubled its client insurance in September to £1 million, at no additional cost to the customers, to provide further assurances to clients with significantly larger investments.
