Further updates on crypto trading conditions

Posted by Svilen Milev | 15/01/2018 14:19

New changes are now in place to improve upon the relevant trading conditions amid a highly volatile market.

Please note that the below have come into effect since 00:01 GMT+2 on Dec 17.

  1. The following are unavailable for trading temporarily: ETPUSD, ZECUSD, LTCUSD, LTCEUR, XRPUSD, XRPEUR, IOTAUSD, OMGUSD, XMRUSD, ETHEUR, BTCEUR.
    Pricing and trading will resume upon the return of liquidity and price stability.
  2. Contract specifications have been adjusted as well, as follows:
  Bitcoin Ethereum All other cryptos
Leverage 5:1 2:1 2:1
Position limits* 5 contracts 5 contracts 3 contracts
* Position limits are aggregate across all accounts.

This is just to remind you that the crypto market is exceptionally volatile. Its lack of liquidity has also attached extremely high risk to short-term trading of cryptocurrencies as a strategy.

As a multi-asset global broker, we are simultaneously bringing world-class trading conditions for forex, indices, commodities and metals to all our traders. With us you can trade these other CFDs with leverage up to 400:1.

There is also an educational section on our website dedicated to helping with your trading skills — so be sure to make full use of it.

Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate contacting our multilingual support team.
