FXOpen Crypto accounts allow pairs trading with the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Namecoin, Emercoin and Peercoin. The basic principal of the Crypto accounts is the same as that of the ECN accounts – trading is carried out directly by participants who with their orders form the trading network.
The main difference in trading cryptocurrencies is that the system operates in decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) network, i.e. the network is controlled not by one of the central financial and public authorities but by the network members who possess equal rights.
FXOpen Company provides its client with the best offers available thanks to the unique mechanism of price aggregation that has long been successfully used for FXOpen ECN accounts. ECN aggregator processes all the requests available at the time and your orders are executed at the most favorable conditions.
Swap—a charge that is incurred by Customers who move their positions to the next trading session—is applied on Crypto accounts.
Swap size: 18% per annum of the value of an open position.
Swap calculation: The swap is given in percent per annum. Since swaps are calculated and charged every day at the end of the trading session, the calculated amount of the annual interest rate is divided by 360. When charging swaps, first the cost of one symbol lot is calculated (the symbol of the opened position), and then the specified percent is calculated, the obtained amount is multiplied by the position volume (in lots) and the result is divided by 360. If the base currency of the symbol is different from the deposit currency, the swap is converted into the deposit currency.
Overnight from Wednesday to Thursday a triple SWAP is charged.
