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?

Low cost of entry

Micronized contracts allow you to place trades as small as the equivalent of 1/100th of a Bitcoin, which also lowers the margin requirements to hold a position open.
