Cryptocurrency trading is CFD trading that permits traders to speculate on its price movements without owning the physical, digital currency. Just like in other CFD markets you can take advantage of the market conditions and alter your strategy by going short (selling when the value drops) or long (buying when you think the value will increase). It is an easily accessible market that has low barriers to entry. Due to its decentralised nature, it is open 24 hours 7 days a week, meaning that there are always opportunities for trade. In addition, deals happen directly between individuals which makes the process quicker and simpler by cutting out the middleman.
