What are crypto CFDs?

A crypto CFD is a contract that allows traders to trade on the difference in a cryptocoin’s price from when you first open a position to when you close it. This means you can make trades on whether you think a crypto will go up (or down) in value - and you can add leverage as well! As you are speculating on prices through a contract, you will not directly own the crypto coins or need a special “hot wallet” that might get cryptojacked. All crypto CFDs we offer are available on MT5.

Crypto FAQs

What are crypto CFDs?

A crypto CFD is a contract that allows traders to trade on the difference in a cryptocoin’s price from when you first open a position to when you close it. This means you can make trades on whether you think a crypto will go up (or down) in value - and you can add leverage as well! As you are speculating on prices through a contract, you will not directly own the crypto coins or need a special “hot wallet” that might get cryptojacked. All crypto CFDs we offer are available on MT5.

We offer crypto CFDs with up to 1:10 leverage on MT5. These include Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Shiba - with tight spreads <1% including US$5 on BTCUSD and US$0.30 on ETHUSD.

Cryptocurrencies are available on MT5 (MetaTrader 5) with Executive and Premiere FXPesa accounts.

CFD (or ‘Contract for Differences’) trading involves different types of contracts covering a diverse set of financial instruments such as indices, commodities or crypto - whereas crypto coins refer to assets held as virtual currency.

Crypto coins normally need to be held in a special wallet (which can make them vulnerable to ‘cryptojacking’ - which means coins are hacked or stolen from your wallet) and their value is affected by market events. As you don’t own the asset directly with a crypto CFD; you can open a position for a crypto coin’s price increasing (go long) or decreasing (go short). This allows the trader to capture potential profits on the rise or fall of prices - and to increase a position at a fraction of the deposit by using leverage. Always remember that prices can move up or down, so it’s important to always trade within your means and use appropriate risk management.
