WAYS TO TRADE BITCOIN
CFD products are designed to give market exposure without ever owning the underlying.
A Bitcoin CFD enables you to trade a contract based on prices in the underlying market.
It is margin product, meaning you can put down an initial deposit and still gain exposure of a much larger position. This can magnify profits as well as losses.
WHAT FACTORS INFLUENCE BITCOIN’S PRICE?
Bitcoin’s volatility makes the cryptocurrency an attractive opportunity as well as a risky market to speculate on.
Its price can shift significantly and suddenly. Volatility in Bitcoin’s price is driven by several external factors:
- Market Cap
- Bad Press
- Advance in blockchain technology
- Key events
BITCOIN CFD EXAMPLE
You’re interested in trading a bitcoin via a CFD.
Our current price is 10,000 to sell bitcoin, or 10,020 to buy it.
You believe that bitcoin’s price will fall against the dollar, so you sell 1 contract at 10,000 (equivalent to selling 5 bitcoins at €10,000).
The bitcoin price falls and now price is 9,880/9,900.
You decide to take profit and close your position by buying at 9,900.
$10,000 – $9,900 = $100 move or 100 points. Your profit is $500.
If the bitcoin price moved higher by 100 points instead, your loss would be $500.
