Trade Bitcoin with FXCM
We have launched our first cryptocurrency CFD, BTC/USD. The BTC/USD tracks the CME Bitcoin Future as its underlying reference. You can enable the instrument on your account today by typing 'BTC/USD' into the search box on the Trading Station Symbols list window or by right clicking in the MT4 Market Watch window and selecting “symbols”.
What are Cryptocurrencies?
Bitcoin is a decentralized currency that is based on distributed computing. The controversial new digital currency relies on "block chain" technology to verify each transaction. Owners of bitcoin traditionally need to store their bitcoins online or in a physical form. However now any Trading Station & MetaTrader 4 account holder can take advantage of the volatility in this cutting edge new market without owning any Cryptocurrency.
Why Trade BTC/USD with FXCM?
1 Leverage: Leverage is a double-edged sword and can dramatically amplify your profits. It can also just as dramatically amplify your losses. Trading foreign exchange with any level of leverage may not be suitable for all investors.
