Cryptocurrency FAQs

When you trade cryptocurrencies including the ones offered by easyMarkets; Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple what you are trading is a form of digital currency. They are intended and designed to function just like any other currency – giving the owner the ability to exchange their cryptocurrency for products and services (or trade it). The main benefit that cryptocurrency owners, users and creators claim is that it is insulated from government intervention via Q.E. or the printing of ‘new’ money, that can catch currency-holders by surprise. Trade cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ripple, Litecoin and Ethereum that are blockchain based minus Ethereum, which is type of ledger that tracks transactions.

In simple terms, yes. easyMarkets allows you to trade cryptocurrencies as pairs against the US dollar, three ways – easyTrade, Day Trade and as a Pending Order so in essence it is CFD cryptocurrency trading. In the most simplified of terms, all traders seek to acquire the asset at a very low price and sell it at a higher price for a profit. Of course, this does not calculate for volatility, market conditions, margin requirements etc. Visit this link to find out more about how to trade bitcoin.

Knowing the fundamentals of CFD Cryptocurrency trading will help you better understand the risks and the cost associated with trading CFDs on cryptocurrency. easyMarkets features an extensive learn centre that can help familiarize yourself with how to trade cryptocurrencies , or any of the other instruments we offer. Here are few of the fundamental terms that apply across CFD trading:

  • Base and Quote Currency – trading Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and Litecoin all instruments are displayed with three letter abbreviations with a backslash and another three letter currency next to it i.e. BTC/USD. The BTC is the base currency and is always 1 unit of the currency (i.e. 1 Bitcoin) where as the USD is a the quote currency and is the amount needed to buy (or sell) 1 unit of the base currency.
  • Buy – when trading most instruments are in pairs, when you ‘buy’ you are buying one side of the currency pair while selling the other. In the case of BTC/USD it is as if you are buying bitcoin and simultaneously selling the US Dollar. Traders generally buy when the currency pair’s rate is low. Although the term is ‘buy’ you are not actually obligated to own the asset or currency pair, which allows you to take advantage of both upwards and downwards trends.
  • Sell – Like ‘Buy’ when you sell a CFD Cryptocurrency cryptocurrency pair you are ‘selling’ the base currency and ‘buying’ the quote currency. Again, the terms ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ are illustrative, you are actually exchanging.
  • Bid and Ask Price – In very simple terms, CFD transaction are bilateral, i.e. involving two parties. The seller ‘asks’ for a specific price a cryptocurrency instrument and the ‘bid’ is the price the buyer is willing to ‘bid’ or purchase the instrument (or underlying instrument in the case of cryptocurrency CFDs).
  • Spread –spread is the difference between the lowest bid and highest ask price of an instrument. Spread is also what you pay when trading CFD cryptocurrency instrument – because as mentioned above when trading cryptocurrency pair or any other currency pair you are buying and selling at the same time. When you trade with a fixed spread broker like easyMarkets this cost never changes during trading hours, giving you a tactical advantage because your costs are apparent upfront and transparent. With floating or variable spread brokers spreads can change in response to volatility, increasing trading cost significantly. What is worse is that this can result in an otherwise profitable trading session ending up in the “red” or unprofitable.
  • Lot – a lot is 100,000 units of the base currency. Of course, smaller denomination of lots is available as well 100, 1,000, 10,000 to accommodate any size of account and margin availability.

Why trade cryptocurrencies?

Decentralized

Cryptocurrencies are seldom affected by policy changes or geopolitical instability – and we have seen markets treat it as a safe-haven because of this.

More Choice

Each market has its own benefits and disadvantages, knowing when and in what combination these should be taken advantage of can optimize your crypto trading strategy.

Active

Cryptocurrencies are extremely active compared to traditional currencies. Prices can change remarkably within days or even hours. This creates a new frontier for trading.

New Opportunity

We have seen cryptos enter the mainstream, skyrocket to five figures and plummet within a few months. CFDs allow you to both buy and sell the underlying cryptocurrency.
