How to trade Cryptocurrency CFDs
There’s a huge buzz over Cryptocurrencies but how can you actually trade them? We’ve got a range of experts to teach you about Cryptocurrencies – including Ashraf Laidi – to detail their strategies and risk management techniques.
Could Bitcoin hit $10,000 or will the bubble burst?
Back in May, Bitcoin hit $2,000 and people were claiming that the bubble would burst. A month later prices reached $3,000. Since then, Bitcoin traded back below $2,000 and has now rallied to trade above $4,000. So how much further could the rally really go – or is a crash still on the horizon?
What could be the next breakout star Cryptocurrency?
Two years ago everyone was talking about Bitcoin. Now there’s more than 100 Cryptocurrencies. What could be the new breakout star and how might the crypto space grow?
