Percentage Increase/Decrease In Top 4 Cryptos Since 1 Jan 2018
As of 14:34 UTC
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ripple and Litecoin experienced a price decline in 2018. If you were using a standard crypto-exchange to invest in cryptocurrencies, you may have been unable to capitalise on their price drop. The majority of crypto-exchanges do not allow you to sell or impose restrictions on short selling.
Fondex gives you the freedom to both BUY and SELL all cryptocurrencies.

Frequently Asked Questions
Trading cryptocurrency CFDs with Fondex
Contrary to buying and owning a cryptocurrency, when you trade a CFD, you do not own the underlying asset. Instead, you speculate on its rising or falling prices. For instance, if you believe that the price of Bitcoin will rise against the USD, then you BUY Bitcoin.
  • You can both buy and sell, taking advantage of small price fluctuations and shorter time frames. Buying Bitcoin via an exchange could work better as a medium or long-term investment whereas CFDs are also appropriate for short-term trading.
  • You can trade on leverage up to 1:10, controlling a larger amount of money with a relatively small deposit.
  • No transaction fees.
  • Your deposits don’t run the risk of being blocked. Banks are often blocking deposits of money earned from crypto-exchanges. When you trade with Fondex, your deposits don't run this risk-you can rest assured that your money won't be stuck.
Fondex offers CFDs on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, Dash and Emercoin crosses. You can trade more than 20 cryptocurrency pairs and take advantage of our tight spreads and unbeatable execution!
When you trade cryptocurrency CFDs, you buy or sell one cryptocurrency against another cryptocurrency or a regular currency. For example, when you trade BTC/USD, you speculate on Bitcoin’s price rising or falling against the USD. When you trade ETH/BTC, you speculate on Ethereum’s price rising or falling against the Bitcoin.
When trading CFDs , your profit/loss is the price difference between the asset’s open and close price. For example, if you enter a BUY order for BTC/USD and its price rises, you make a profit. However, if you are wrong and its price drops, you make a loss.
Wallets are used to store, send, receive and track your cryptocurrency assets. Since you do not own any actual assets, you do not need to have a wallet when trading cryptocurrencies with Fondex. Your funds are kept safely with top-tier banks in segregated accounts and can be accessed at your discretion.
The minimum trade size for cryptocurrencies is 0.01 lots.
  • Fondex is fully licensed and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) in accordance with the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).
