FP Markets offers cryptocurrency CFDs in major assets like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Ethereum, for positions against the US Dollar.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is the digital currency with the largest market capitalisation and price levels since its inception in 2008

Litecoin (LTC)

Similar to Bitcoin, LTC differs in terms of scalability.

It takes roughly 2.5 minutes to mine a block, as compared to 10 minutes for Bitcoin.

Litecoin is definitely one of the most popular altcoins out there.

The cryptocurrency Litecoin (LTC/USD) is a fork of Bitcoin (BTC/USD), as its developers copied Bitcoin’s code, made a number of alterations to it and launched a new project.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Bitcoin Cash was created by the Bitcoin hard fork on August 1, 2017, made a new version of the blockchain with different rules

Bitcoin Cash was created as a result of counteracting a prolonged Bitcoin scalability problem

It works by switching from the main Bitcoin blockchain to a new version, the software now has capacity for a larger number of transactions (by eight megabytes to be exact)

Ethereum (ETH)

The second largest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin

It allows developers to create smart contracts on the platform

Ethereum has gained massive popularity over the years, due to its involvement in multiple blockchain projects

An Example of Leveraged
Cryptocurrency CFD Trading

Suppose you want to trade CFDs, where the underlying asset is the BTC/USD a Cryptocurrency, also known as BITCOIN. Let us suppose that the BTC/USD is trading at:

You decide to buy 1 digital coin of BTC/USD because you think that the BTC/USD price will rise in the future. Your margin rate is 50%. This means that you need to deposit 50% of the total position value into your margin account.

Now, in the next hour, if the price moves to 29789,76 / 29799,76, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current (Bid) price of USD 29789,76

In this case, the price moved in your favor. But, had the price declined instead, moving against your prediction, you could have made a loss. This continuous evaluation of price movements and resultant profit/loss happens daily. Accordingly, it leads to a net return (positive/negative) on your initial margin. In the loss scenario where your Free equity, (Equity - Margin) falls below the margin requirements (14799,88), the broker will issue a margin call. If you fail to deposit the money, and the market moves further against you, when your free equity reach the 50% of your initial margin the contract will be closed at the current market price, known as “stop out.”

If the price
To You could Gain or Lose
for a Long Position
Resulting in a Return
of the Initial Margin
Rises by 1% 29885,66/29895,76 USD 285,90 2%
Declines by 1% 29293,86/29303,76 USD -305,90 -2%
